A fire early Tuesday that destroyed a barn in Wanship was sparked by an extension cord.
The fire began some time before 4:10 a.m. in a barn at 29731 Old Lincoln Highway, according to North Summit Fire District spokesman Tyler Rowser. The blaze completely destroyed the barn, valued at about $150,000, and displaced several goats and dogs that had fled to an exterior, fenced-in area.
Crews managed to rescued the animals and no people were injured in the fire. However, it also destroyed about $30,000 worth contents in the barn, including 800 bales of hay that were being stored as winter livestock feed.
