Firefighters responded to a barn fire late Wednesday night between Highway 58 and the Howard Buford Recreation Area, home of the Mount Pisgah arboretum. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Crews from Pleasant Hill Goshen Fire & Rescue responded around 11:15 p.m. to the fire on Dilley Lane.
