Flames, smoke race through dairy farm in Pennsylvania

It was all hands on deck at one dairy farm in Chester County, after a fire ripped its way through it early Wednesday morning.

“All I know is I heard something at 1 in the morning. I looked out and there were flames a hundred feet high,” said Lois Stroh, who lives next door to the dairy farm in the 1800 block of Beaver Dam Road, near Route 10, in Honey Brook Township.

A barn on the property was damaged, and smoke could still be seen hours later.

Investigators have ruled the fire an accident, and no one was hurt. They said all the cattle were safely moved from the barn, and damage from the fire tops $300,000.

The owner of the property did not want to share any details of the fire with 69 News, but local contractors were on site for most of the day.

“What’s going through my mind is these are wonderful people,” said Stroh. “Even as we’re going through this right now, they’re rebuilding already.”
