Errant Fire Burns Down Clare County Home and Barn

Posted: Updated:

A Clare County man was saved from a burning barn in Frost Township this morning just before the barn and half his house went up in flames.

This is what's left of the barn and home about an hour after the fire started.

The fire chief says the homeowner was burning some wood behind the barn before it got loose and caught onto the barn.

The man then passed out while trying to put the fire out and was dragged out by the local police chief who was right around the corner at the time.

Every person was safe but a few chickens and ducks were lost.

9&10's Eric Lloyd was there as crews mopped up the scene and has more details.
