Chippewa County (Barn Fire - 2011)
Authorities say a fire that destroyed a barn in Chippewa County early Tuesday was likely caused by lightning.
According to the local fire chief, crews were called out just before 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 21, in the morning hours in the Town of Hallie where a 250-foot long barn was fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters say one animal was evacuated from the barn and that the structure was a total loss. Damages are estimated at around $350,000.
About a dozen different fire departments from around the area assisted in fighting the blaze.
An investigation over the cause of the fire will continue.
