An Anderson County barn fire is raising questions about fire hydrants. According to firefighters, the nearest water source at that fire Friday morning was three and a half miles away. When volunteer firefighters arrived, the almost 100-year-old barn was already a loss. Ethan Burgess’ mom and step-dad own the farm. Burgess says his mom sent him a video of the fire. “I just saw it going up in flames,” he said. Burgess says it was the farm’s main barn. His family lost expensive equipment, sentimental items, and a shelter for their cattle.
