Fire completely destroys barn and contents
Firemen from the Holton Volunteer Fire Department roll up hoses after responding to this barn fire early Tuesday morning. In the background are the remnants of a 40x40 barn on the property of Rick and Angel Sizemore at 95 S. CR 400 W, that was completely destroyed by fire. Firemen responded to find the structure fully engulfed a little after 5 a.m. on July 7. Firemen from the Versailles Volunteer Fire Department assisted. Sizemore noted he lost a new pickup truck inside, along with numerous other items one would find in a barn, including a riding lawn mower. No one was injured in the blaze. The cause of the fire had not been determined at press time.
