SMYRNA – On Friday a Smyrna barn caught fire and was destroyed by the blaze.
A number of fire crews responded including the Village of Earlville volunteer Fire Department. They said Saturday that no people or animals were seriously injured in the fire.
The department reported that, “At 8:09 p.m. [Friday] evening the Earlville Fire Department was dispatched mutual aid to Smyrna on a reported barn fire. Earlville 151 and 156 responded. Earlville aided in fire suppression and overhaul. All units were back in service at approximately 3 a.m.”
The Smyrna Fire Department also responded and released this statement, “We would like to take this time to thank all of the mutual aid departments that came to help with our barn fire [Friday] night.
“Without your help, there’s no way we could’ve done it. Our sincerest thanks go to the Sherburne, Earlville, Plymouth, North Norwich, and Georgetown Fire Departments for all of your help. Luckily no animals were lost in the fire.
“Thank you also to our members for their hard work this weekend. Some of them have donated nearly 20 hours of service to this community this weekend.”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
