Fire Destroys Fayette County Barn

A barn in Fayette County was destroyed by a fire Tuesday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office says multiple 911 calls came in shortly before 8 am of a barn on fire at 7304 Harding Road east of West Union.

Deputies arrived on scene to a fully-engulfed barn fire with hay and equipment. They had to conduct traffic control in order to get fire trucks through road construction along Highway 18.

No one was injured in the fire, but the barn and equipment is considered a total loss.

The Sheriff’s Office says this fire will continue to burn in a controlled setting for the next couple days.
