A fire of undetermined cause caused $100,000 damage to a rural Thorntown pole barn Wednesday morning.
“I came out of the house and could see the glow in the sky,” Thorntown Fire Department Chief Mike Martin said of the 6:07 a.m. alarm at 1710 W. County Road 725 North. Forrest Phillips is the barn’s owner, Martin said.
Damage to the 40x40 pole barn was estimated at $50,000, Martin said. The barn contained farm implements, a tiller, four-wheelers and other items with a total estimated value of $50,000, that were also destroyed, he said.
The entire building was wrapped in flames when firefighters arrived, Martin said. Flames were so hot that the barn’s metal sides were thinned to near transparency.
No one was injured. There were no animals in the barn, he said.
Fire investigators had not pinned down a specific source of the fire.
Thorntown/Sugar Creek fire was assisted by Lebanon, Center Township and Colfax fire departments.
