Early Morning Fire In Adams Destroys Barn
IBerkshires.com reports an early morning fire at Ziemba's farm on Walling Road destroyed a hay-filled barn complex.
iBerkshires.com reports firefighters from nearly a dozen fire departments spent hours containing the blaze and preventing it from spreading to adjacent buildings and the farmhouse at Broadlawn Farm.
Fire Chief John Pansecchi believed all or most of the dairy cattle were saved. In addition to the Adams Fire Department and Forest Wardens, tankers and equipment also came from Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, Windsor and Savoy, and Stamford, Vt.
The Adams Ambulance Service and Northern Berkshire EMS were also on the scene.
Trucks and vehicles lined narrow Walling Road by the farm. Readsboro, Vt., sent a tanker to standby in Stamford — the only one immediately available to cover North County.
