Barr Township Fire

Authorities with the Nicktown Fire Department have new details on the investigation into Yesterday’s building fire along Amadei Road in Barr Township.

Fire Chief Gregg Shank says the blaze caused extensive damage to the building which served as an Amish-owned roofing supply business.

Investigators say the fire is believed to have started in the business’s motor room, and Chief Shank says those windy conditions were a problem in extinguishing the blaze.

Officials say crews from eight local departments were on scene for nearly seven hours.

Thankfully no injuries were reported.
