    This is truly tragic! Fortunately no lives were lost.
    Am I the only one who’s noticing more and more
    farm/barn fires here lately? Wonderful family who
    has dedicated their entire lives to their equestrian
    and cattle passion and has contributed so much to
    our community. So sorry for their loss.
