Cache County barn fire destroys $195K in hay, equipment
Cache County Fire District
PARADISE, Cache County — Officials are investigating a barn fire that caused an estimated $195,000 damage Tuesday night.
A passerby driving in the area spotted the hay barn burning at 9808 S. 280 East and called 911 about 6:30 p.m. When crews arrived, the barn was fully engulfed in flames, Cache County Fire Marshal Jason Winn said.
The fire destroyed 200 tons of hay, a hay bailer, and a trailer carrying three four-wheelers, a motorcycle and a side-by-side utility vehicle, Winn said. Crews remained on site through Tuesday night as the fire burned itself out.
Investigators will begin searching for the cause of the fire Wednesday morning.
Because there are no fire hydrants in the area, water to fight the two-alarm blaze was brought in on six water trucks. Firefighters from Paradise, Hyrum, Wellsville, Logan, North Logan and Smithfield were called in to help with the blaze.
The barn was located in the middle of a field, so no additional structures were threatened.
