Fire Destroys Olivet FFA Barn

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Firefighters are still on the scene of an early morning fire that reportedly killed more than a dozen animals and destroyed the FFA barn in Olivet.

An eyewitness tells 6 News that the initial call at 2:30 this morning was that the football stadium was on fire.

Responders soon found that it was actually the Future Farmers of America barn at the high school that was burning.

They were unable to get about 15 pigs, cows and steers out of the barn.

6 News has been told that there is no insurance on the animals but the livestock will be replaced.

The Eaton County Sheriff Department is investigating the cause of the fire.
