Firefighters in Towamencin Township made quick work of a barn fire on Green Lane Road Friday.
Emergency responders arriving on the scene were greeted by twists of gray smoke billowing from the roof of the two-story structure by gusting winds. An electric fence and fast moving creek made it impossible for firefighters to access the burning barn from the front so they used Bustard Road Park as a staging ground and attacked the blaze from the rear of the building. No one was hurt dousing the flames but at least three goats were killed by the blaze. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
