Early morning fire destroys barn

Local

An early morning fire has left a barn in Westerlo a total loss.

The fire began around 5 a.m. on Dunbar Hollow Road. The call came in from a local in the area who noticed smoke in the distance.

The cold temperatures created icy conditions on the road near the scene, so crews called in salt trucks to help.  

According to Deputy Fire Chief Tom Diederich, a mama pig and her piglets were lost in the fire.
