FANNETTSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A fire destroyed a barn and its contents on Sunday morning, Jan. 6 around 9:30 a.m. 

Crews from three counties—Franklin, Cumberland and Huntingdon—responded to the incident on Back Road in Fannettsburg. Fire departments had to shuttle water from a nearby creek to the site of the incident by tankers.

According to Metal Township Volunteer Fire Chief Dru Allen, the barn was a total loss. "[It] was pretty much engulfed in flames when units arrived on the scene shortly after the dispatch," he said.

The contents of the barn included hay and livestock, but quick action by nearby residents and neighbors saved the animals, Allen added.

The cause of the blaze was an exhaust pipe which ignited some of the hay, Allen reported.

The barn was owned by Barb Wineman.
 
Firefighters were on the scene until around 1:30 p.m. No injuries were reported to any firefighters.
