At approximately 8 p.m., the Appomattox Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to 105 Humbles Farm Road, located off of State Route 615 between Oakville and Gladstone. The barn was fully engulfed in flames. Fire crews gained control of the fire quickly and then worked to tear the tin outer covering off of what remained of the burned wooden frame. The barn was located in a partially wooded area near the home on the property. There were no injuries as a result of the fire. Fire Chief Jonathan Garrett said the exact cause of the fire was not determined at the time of this report. Assisting at the scene were personnel from the Gladstone Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service, and AVFD engines 1, 2, 3, and Tanker 5.
