Barn fire brings out three departments Monday evening
A Monday evening fire claimed a barn, said to be empty of livestock, on property owned by Thomas and Holly Kaeder, N4883, CTH OO, a mile south of Hwy. 10, rural Hager City.
Ellsworth firefighters were alerted around 7:15 p.m. after fire was reported near a silo that was spreading to the adjacent barn. By the time a Pierce County sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene, flames were enveloping the barn itself.
