Rural fires destroy large barn, car

Hutchinson News – Feb. 13, 2018

Fires in rural Reno County on Sunday destroyed a detached garage and the car inside of it as well as a large barn with four-wheelers at another residence, according to Reno County Fire District No. 3.

Assistant Chief Gerald Wiens said the first call came in around 2:13 p.m. on a detached garage fire at 4704 N. Salem Road. The fire started with a spark from a charging battery for a 2011 Nissan Altima destroyed during the blaze, he said.

The other call to 4616 N. Yaggy Road came at 7:53 p.m. Wiens said additional support was requested from three other fire districts for a “fairly large barn fire.”

He said the two-story barn housed farm equipment, a few four-wheelers and hay inside. The cause of the fire was undetermined, he said.
