Large Fire Destroys Barn Along with Livestock in the Goulds

A large fire destroyed a barn on Back Line in the Goulds last night.

Police and fire crews arrived on the scene around 9:00 p.m. and were there for most of the night and into early this morning until it was fully extinguished.

Posts on social media showed a long, wide structure engulfed in smoke and flames that lit up the night sky. Posts also indicate a large number of livestock were lost in the blaze.

There was a fire on the same property in November of 2020 where a garage was destroyed.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. VOCM News will have more information as it becomes available.
