Rural Storden hog barn burns down

An accident started a fire on Monday afternoon that burned down an empty hog barn southeast of Storden that is owned by Damion Miller.

“It was a total loss,” said Storden Fire Chief Eric Olson. Crews arrived about 3:15 p.m. and spent hours making sure no flames were left burning. There were no injuries.

The barn site is located off 400th Avenue, a gravel road about a mile south of the County Road 13.

Olson said two younger men were washing with equipment on a trailer when the washer trailer started on fire and then spread to the barn before they could contain it.
