PERTH, N.Y. – A barn caught fire in Perth on Friday.
The fire was located on County Highway 107. The Perth Fire Chief Pete Watrobski said a large, multiple unit barn that housed dairy cattle is on fire.
“The farmers that were here were trying to get some of the cows out,” Watrobski said. “We entered the building for their safety. We heard reports that someone was trapped inside, but about five minutes later confirmed no one was trapped inside.”
They were ablet o get many of the cows out, but not all of them. Fortunately, they kept the blaze from reaching some propane tanks and other structures.
An investigation into what caused the fire continues.
