3-Alarm Fire Destroys Barn, Antique Farm Equipment Near Clarion

November 18, 2013

Three fire companies attempted to battle a Sunday night fire that destroyed a barn near Clarion, as well as the hay and antique farm equipment that were stored inside.

C-93 Radio reports that the fire erupted around 8:30 PM Sunday evening at a farm in Strattanville.  Earlier erroneous reports had listed the location as the Route 66 site of Clarion Farms, which was not affected.

Firefighters were on the scene for about six hours, with many staying at the farm until about 2:30 AM Monday morning.

The barn was believed to be more than 140 years old.  The farm on which the structure was located is owned by Fred Port, who told C-93 Radio that the lights in his farmhouse dimmed, and he looked out a window to see a “fire ball” shooting from his barn.

No cattle were in the barn at the time.  The cause of the fire is believed to have been electrical in nature.
