UPDATE: Fire Destroys Ashland Building
BOONE COUNTY - Crews put out a fire in Southern Boone County Tuesday night. The fire started in the middle of a field located off Highway 63 near Peterson Lane just after 9 p.m. The Southern Boone County Fire Chief, Roger Jaeger, said the location of the fire made it difficult to reach and involved an abandoned building.
The building was completely destroyed. Crews on scene let the building burn because they had difficulty getting supplies down to the building.
The Southern Boone County Fire Protection District said its main goal was to prevent the fire from spreading into the woods.
