Jefferson County hay barn fire
A large barn with round bales of hay and a hay baler was destroyed by fire Sunday afternoon. Dandridge Volunteer Fire Chief Andy Riley said the 2:41 pm blaze on the Miller Road, Jefferson City farm of Robert Ailey was spotted by a passing motorist. "The first firefighters on the scene said the barn was fully involved when they arrived on the scene," Chief Piley said. The 25 X 30 structure contained more than 70 round bales of hay, and it took nearly five hours to extinguish the blaze. The bales of hay had to be removed and rolled out in a nearby field so they could be extinguished. The fire chief said more than 12,000 gallons of watewr had to be shuttled to the site in the fire fighting effort. Firemen from Lakeway Central, Kansas Talbott and Jefferson City assisted in the mutual aide response. The cause of the blaze which left a $100,000 loss, has not been determined. Chief Riley said there was electricity to the structure, and the cause is thought to have been accidental.
