Barn Fire

A fire destroyed a pole barn at 9609 Route 4 on Monday afternoon.

About 20 members of the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company spent much of the afternoon battling the blaze, which was reported at 1:15 p.m.

Although it took firefighters less than a half hour to knock back the flames, they remained on scene until nearly 4 p.m. because the barn contained hay.

There were also a number of propane cylinders in the barn, which was located in a stand of pine trees.

Firefighters were forced to erect portable water reservoirs because there was no water source on the property.

Washington County Fire Investigators were working Monday to determine the cause of the fire.
