Pole Barn Fire Causes $200,000 Damage

A fire at a pole barn on Wednes­day after­noon, north of Angola, caused nearly $200,000 worth of dam­age. Flames broke out just after 3:00pm yes­ter­day on the Clay Grif­fin along State Road 127. The build­ing had a lot of small equip­ment in it, along with large round bales of hay. The fire was under con­trol within about an hour, but sev­eral fire­fight­ers were treated for heat exhaus­tion and fatigue due to the heat and humid­ity. The cause of the fire was ruled acci­den­tal due to exces­sive heat and com­bustible mate­ri­als. Nobody was hurt.
