That’s when crews were called to the Fox Dairy Farm on the Nokomis Road.
Firefighters arrived to discover the front part of a milking house covered in flames.
They were able to quickly get it under control.
All the cows made it out safely.
The barn has a metal roof, which complicated things.
There has been no word yet on a cause.
Fire crews were called back out in the afternoon.
This time to a single story home on Route 7 across from White’s Construction around 3 o’clock.
A neighbor reported seeing smoke coming from the windows, and from under the home.
Firefighters say they were able to extinguish the fire relatively quickly.
A woman and her two children lived in the home, but no one was there when the fire broke out.
Folks nearby tried to help fight the fire.
There were a number of family pets inside the home, including a snake and a bird.
We’re told all the animals made it out safely.
The state fire marshals have been called in to investigate. There has been no word yet on if the property is insured.
