A large barn and all of its contents were lost this morning in a fire on Knob Road.
Firefighters were paged today at around 5:30AM to the report of a fully involved barn fire in the 1200 block of Knob Road, off of KY HWY 422 (Pig Road).
According to radio traffic, the barn was already on the ground when firefighters first arrived. Emergency personnel worked to keep the blaze from spreading further.
The barn was owned by Mr. Royce Houchin, who said he saw the fire and reported it immediately. According to Mr. Houchin, there was no electric to the structure, which contained some machinery, including a hay baler, and around 60 round bales of hay.
Mr. Houchin said the original portion of the barn was likely 100 years old or more; however, he'd built other sections onto the structure over the years.
All the contents, including the hay, were lost in the fire. No cause of the fire was given and no injuries were reported.
Responding to the scene were the Rocky Hill, Brownsville, Wingfield, and Park City fire departments, as well as Warren Rural Electric.
