Fire destroys barn.


ELBRIDGE TOWNSHIP — A barn was destroyed by fire Monday evening, April 23, on 160th Avenue near Baseline Road, said Jerry Frick of the Walkerville Fire Department.

The barn owned by Rob Farst was not an active barn for farming, Frick said. No animals were inside it, and no one was injured. It was an older, smaller structure, he said, but it contained some equipment.

A fire in a burning barrel got out of control, causing a grass fire that spread to the barn, Frick said.

Firefighters were able to save the nearby house from catching fire.

Frick did not immediately know if the barn was insured.

Ferry Township Fire Department assisted.
