Three Animals Killed In Southern Door Barn Fire

 

Three animals were killed in a barn fire Thursday in the Town of Brussels.

Brussels-Union-Gardner Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wautier says firefighters received a call shortly after 5 p.m. about a barn fire at 9301 County Hwy J. The barn is owned by Neill and Louise Gilbertson.

Wautier says the fire started at the north end of the structure and spread rapidly because of gusty north winds. He says when fire crews arrived the barn was engulfed in flames. Wautier says they managed to save a calf and four small pigs but two pigs and a five-month-old calf were lost in the fire. The barn was a total loss.

Wautier says the cause is being investigated. He says a heat lamp was being used in the pig pen but it's not known if that's what started the blaze.

Firefighters from Southern Door, Casco, and Luxemburg provided mutual aid.
