Huntingdon, Tenn.- According to a press release on Monday, August 28th at 6:44pm the Huntingdon Fire and Rescue was dispatched to a barn fire at 11940 Lexington Street in Huntingdon. The property is owned by Charles and Elizabeth Crider.

According to Fire Marshal Steve Price, Mr. Crider was able to remove ten horses from the barn prior to the arrival of the fire department. The first unit arrived on the scene at 6:45pm and a fire was burning deep within the hay that was stored in the barn. Members of the department used a tractor to help pull hay from the structure so that the burning hay could be extinguished.

A total of 29 firemen worked the scene until 10:18pm and they consumed 60 bottles of air during the process. Exhaustion soon became an equal battle as was the attempt to extinguish the burning hay.

At 5:07am on Tuesday morning the fire department was again dispatched to the scene when Mr. Crider reported that the hay had re-ignited. The fire was extinguished and units were back in service within an hour.

All of the hay was removed from the barn and an early estimate is that losses will be over $10,000. An estimate on damages to the barn itself were unavailable at this time. The cause of the fire is still undetermined, but no injured were reported in the fire. The Huntingdon Fire and Rescue were assisted by members of County Station #4 and County Station #10.
