Total Value of Buildings is $45,000;
Four Burn
Fire which broke out in the hayloft of a barn on the Bell Stephens and Sons Millburn Brown Swiss Farm late this morning caused a $13,000 loss to buildings, hay, grain and machinery. Four buildings, the haybarn, the dairy barn, the tool shed and the granary, were destroyed.
Antioch fire volunteers, called shortly before noon, were successful in checking the blaze in time to prevent it from spreading to other buildings on the property which have a total value of $45,000 according to Sam Tarbell, fire official.
Nine hundred bushels of grain which was stored in the granary was saved by keeping water trained on it while the building in which it was housed burned to the ground. Livestock housed in the dairy barn was also saved from damage.
