Man Burned Trying To Rescue Animals From Barn Fire

A man was hurt Sun­day morn­ing while try­ing to res­cue live­stock from a barn fire. It hap­pened on Ful­ton County Road C early Sun­day morn­ing, around 3:30am. When fire­fight­ers got there, the barn was fully engulfed in flames. Clay­ton Foor rented the prop­erty, where he tended to a herd of goats. Foor ran inside to try to res­cue as many goats as he could from the flames. It cost him in the form of some severe injuries. Foor suf­fered seri­ous burns to his hands and face. He was treated at the scene by Ful­ton County EMS and then life flighted to Mercy St. Vin­cent Med­ical Center’s burn unit, where he was last listed in seri­ous con­di­tion. Much of the live­stock was lost in the fire, but it didn’t spread to any adjoin­ing build­ings. The barn was com­pletely destroyed. So far, the esti­mate of dam­age has not been added up. While the cause does not appear to be sus­pi­cious, it is still under inves­ti­ga­tion today.
