Firefighters battle barn blaze Sunday


Crews worked to put out a large barn fire in the 1800 block of Gibson Road near Martinsville beginning at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday. Fire personnel with tankers and pumpers from Wilmington, Clinton-Warren, and Martinsville-Clark Township fought to bring it under control early on. The barn contained a camper and large amounts of firewood that firefighters soaked to keep from burning, as the metal roof melted and parts of the barn’s frame collapsed. No injuries were reported. Information on a possible cause was not yet available. The scene was cleared at about 3:25 p.m.
