Fire Destroys Two Nearly Empty Barns in Grand Traverse County

Posted: Updated:

Fire ripped through two nearly empty barns in Grand Traverse County destroying them. The two barns caught fire around 8:00 last night off of East Duck Lake Road in Interlochen.

The Blair Township Fire Chief says it's likely the fire started several hours before it was reported. Flames started in one barn, and spread to the one in front of it which re-ignited early this morning.

The Fire Chief tells us there was a tractor inside with a small amount of gasoline and a battery; but, they believe wooden logs inside fueled the fire.
