Lincoln barn destroyed by fire

A heat lamp is to blame for a barn blaze in the Town of Lincoln Tuesday night. The owner of the farm located on County S arrived at his home to find smoke coming out of the barn. By the time crews arrived on the scene shortly after 8:30 p.m., the 30 x 40-foot barn structure was completely engulfed by flames. Luxemburg Fire Chief Lew Duchateau says firefighters turned their attention first to the home nearby and the owner’s chickens.

The home did not suffer any additional damage and all the chickens were saved, but the barn is considered a total loss. Fire departments from Casco, Kewaunee, Algoma, Southern Door, Brussels-Union-Gardner, and New Franken all provided assistance fighting the blaze. The Denmark Fire Department was on standby just in case another call came in and the Kewaunee County Highway Department, Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department, and Luxemburg Rescue also provided support. Crews were on scene for approximately three hours, leaving the site around midnight.
