Fire destroys Plainfield barn

Posted: Updated:

A Plainfield farmer was able to save all of his farm animals from his burning barn minutes before it was fully engulfed.

The Frederika Fire Department responded to the massive fire in the 1700 of 110th Street just after 7 p.m. Thursday.

When crews arrived the barn was fully engulfed in flames. Crews worked to make sure the flames did not spread to surrounding properties.

The Frederika Fire Department stayed on scene for about three hours. Mutual aid assistance was provided by the Plainfield Fire Department and the Tripoli Fire Department. Also assisting at the scene were the Bremer County Sheriff’s Office, Waverly Ambulance, and Bremer County Emergency Management.

The owners say they are thankful everyone is okay. No animals were hurt and no one was injured. The cause of the fire is unknown.

Tune in tonight at 5 and 6 for the full story.
