CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Fire destroyed a large hay-filled barn and damaged a corn crib on Earl Road early Saturday morning, fire officials said.
Chief Ed Smith of Independent Fire Company in Charles Town said the call came in at 1:39 a.m.
"We arrived to find a large barn totally involved in a fire that had radiated across the property line and started burning a corn crib. We let the barn burn and saved the corn crib and other attached storage buildings," Smith said.
The fire started in a 100-foot by 100-foot barn on O'Sullivan Farms about four miles outside of the city, he said. The property is owned by Randy Funkhouser.
