Fire Destroys Boone County Barn
ASHLAND - The cause of a fire that completely destroyed one family's barn Saturday afternoon is still unknown.
By the time Southern Boone County Fire Protection District responded to the fire shortly after 4p.m., the barn on Englewood Road had already burned to the ground.
Paul Harmon discovered the fire and said he got there too late to save the property where he spent his childhood.
"I've lived here all my life, and I've grown up on this barn. It's just going to be different now," said Harmon.
Harmon estimates the barn had been in the family for about -100 years.
There were no injuries, and the Southern Boone County Fire has not yet determined the cause, according to public information officer Price Nichols.
