A quick response by firefighters allowed the department to assist the owner in saving 14 head of steer and pet cattle from a burning barn Saturday morning.
The two-alarm fire started around 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning in southeast Pennsylvania. The York Daily Record reports the Eureka Fire Department was nearby when it received a call about the burning barn which was extinguished by 8 a.m.
Tankers used water from the farm’s stream and local pond to extinguish the blaze. Fifteen emergency vehicles responded to the scene.
The fire caused an estimated $210,000 in damage, burning the barn down to the stone foundation and damaging an elevator, corn grinder and tractor.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
