Barn Fire

 Yesterday I was running a few errands and came across this disturbing sight.  It is a barn I have passed many times over the years, and I was greatly saddened to see it on fire.  There were already three or four firetrucks on the scene, and as I drove on down the road I passed at least six more on their way to the fire.  I could see the black smoke for miles in my rear view mirror.


I have been looking for information, hoping that no person and no animal has been a casualty but I haven't come across anything yet.


I also worry about those firefighters.  


They will always have my greatest respect and admiration for what they do 

I also feel very sorry for the people who lost their barn.  The effect this must have on them, I can only imagine.

Denise, if there were no animals inside and no danger to other property or people, the firemen may have felt it safer to let the fire burn itself out.

Sadness to see an old barn go up in smoke, but then the real sadness id - was there a business gone up in smoke too.

All I can say is - had a blogging break, but now back in Harness, and reviving my blog.

It hurts my heart to see something like that burn. All that history. All those stories those walls could have told. Great pics, too.

They burn so quickly because they always have such dry wood.

those barn fires can take on a life of their own. Hope no one was hurt.

Fires are so terrifying and firefighters have my highest respect and admiration. They are heros.

Sad as it is to see property destroyed, people and animals are my first priority. No building is worth a life.

Very sad indeed. Hope some good comes from this loss in the end.

It saddens me to imagine how much they lost, and what implications this has for their lives now. I'll offer up a prayer for the people of the farm, but also thanksgiving for the fire department.

I'm hope nobody got hurt. We had some Tulsa firefighters injured while fighting a school building fire. The fire flashed over on them suddenly and burned some of them severely.
