Nifong Barn Fire in Columbia Ruled Unintentional
COLUMBIA - Columbia Fire Department investigators determined Sunday's fire at Crown Center Farms was an accident.
According to the department, the fire started in the southeast corner of the structure, near the furnace.
"We cannot rule out the furnace as the potential cause," Fire Marshal and Battalion Chief Brad Fraizer said.
Insurance investigators are getting furnace experts to inspect the furnace to find out if it played a role in starting the fire.
Fraizer said the damage totaled about $750,000.
