HAYSVILLE — Units of the Haysville Volunteer Fire Department were requested by Martin County dispatch Wednesday evening when a structure fire was reported in Rutherford Township.
Fire Chief John Fuhrman said the 6:58 p.m. callout sent the department to the Anthony and Teneka Arvin property at 13454 E. Martin County Road 550S, west of U.S. 231.
Family members noticed smoke and found a new 32-by-32 pole barn ablaze, according to Fuhrman. Repair work to a tractor had taken place earlier in the building, but the cause is undetermined at this time, the chief said.
The building and its contents, including the tractor, an air compressor and other tools, were destroyed, with the loss estimated at $30,000.
Three trucks and 15 firefighters were on the scene just over an hour. Martin County Civil Defense assisted with a tanker and personnel.
