Firefighters do battle with persistent barn blaze

Lamar County firefighters finally extinguished a barn fire on The Rock Road late Monday afternoon after battling it since about midnight Sunday. Fire chief Steve Andrews said the barn was located at The Rock Farm, a 700-acre spread in southwest Lamar. The barn held a boat, tractor and 70 round bales of hay. ”The county public works department had to bring in a track hoe to help us with the hay,” Andrews said. The cause of the fire remains unknown. Firefighters used 24,000 gallons of water and 90 gallons of fire retardant foam in bringing the blaze under control.
