By Staff | Feb 16, 2011

A fire destroyed a barn along Winebrenner Road in Shepherdstown Tuesday night, and the cause is still undetermined, according to Danny Thomas, Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department health and safety officer who responded to the call.

The SVFD and six other units responded to a call at approximately 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Thomas said. He reported that there were no fatalities or injuries; however, there was some loss of livestock the number still to be determined and a local veterinarian was called.

Thomas said he did not know the dollar amount of the damage, but “the barn was a complete loss.”

SVFD was first to respond to the scene. Other assisting units included Baker Heights, Bedington, Sharpsburg, Citizens, Independent and Friendship fire departments, Thomas said.
