Fire destroys barn, semi in Darke County

Semi hauling military vehicle strikes overpass on Stanley Avenue  

Fire crews from multiple jurisdictions responded to the barn, located in the 5100 block of Beamsville-Union City Road, per initial reports. 

Crews worked to quickly put out the fire on the second barn before tending to the semi, he said. It’s unclear if the fire started in the barn or the vehicle, McCleskey said, noting that a fire investigator was called to the scene to determine the cause of the fire.
