Barn Fire in Stockett

Posted: Updated:

There was a fire in Stockett this afternoon burning one barn and endangering several near by houses. Firefighter crews from sand Coulee, Black Eagle, Gore Hill, Belt and Malmstrom were called to the scene at 34 Johnson Road early afternoon with reports that a barn that was on fire. Before the Fire Departments arrival the fire had already spread to the dry grass near the barn due to high winds. The winds made it more difficult for firefighters to put out the fire and focus on keeping the surrounding houses safe.

"Well when we got on scene the barn was already on the ground so that's what our job was, was to kind of do structure protection around the barn so," says Gore Hill Fire Department, Justin Kercher.

Fire crews were able to put out the big flames and continued working on small hot spots on the ground, but the barn itself was too badly damaged. No injuries have been reported and there no word yet as to what might have caused the fire.
