GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A barn that may have been 200 years old burned to the ground Sunday after two juveniles started a fire in the straw while playing with matches, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Greencastle Fire Chief Bob Ebersole, who was the first firefighter on the scene, saved several cows housed in the barn at 763 Zarger Road by opening the gates and letting them run into the fields behind the barn, he said.
The house across from the barn was built in 1781, and officials said the barn was probably built about the same time.
