A barn on Teitzel Road in Centralia was a “total loss” due to a fire that consumed the structure Sunday afternoon, according to Riverside Fire Authority.
There were no injuries to fire personnel or the owners of the property, Assistant Fire Chief Kevin Anderson said, but a dog was treated for minor burns.
Riverside still has not determined a cause of the fire, though they suspect it stemmed from a “four-wheeler” that was inside the barn at the time of the fire.
“We don’t believe it was associated to hay or anything, we believe it was associated to a four-wheeler possibly,” Anderson said.
Because of the destruction to the building, Anderson said it will be difficult to pin down a precise cause of the fire. Anderson was at the scene of the fire Monday working on the investigation.
