Fire caused major damage to a horse barn Wednesday afternoon on Grindstone Hill Road in Antrim Township. Rescue Hose Co. firefighters were dispatched at 12:20 p.m. and found the barn at 7432 Grindstone Hill Road engulfed in flames, which threatened other nearby buildings. No horses were in the barn at the time of the fire, but there was hay burning inside. The fire, which is not suspicious, was contained to the barn, according to the Rescue Hose Co. report, which noted neighbors came with excavators to remove the contents of the barn. Rescue Hose Co. was assisted by firefighters from Marion, New Franklin, the Franklins, Maugansville, Smithsburg, Leitersburg, MMP&W, Letterkenny, Fayetteville and Chambersburg, as well as the Franklin County Air Unit. They were on the scene until 2:47 p.m.
