A hay barn in Shawano County is a total loss after a fire early Sunday morning. Fire Chief Dan Ladwig from the Bowler Fire Department said firefighters were on scene for more than 12 hours at Matsche Farms in the Town of Almon. Multiple fire departments provided mutual aid. Cattle were in a nearby barn just feet away, but did not suffer any injuries. The chief said the fire most likely started from moisture build up on the hay. "We may get called back out," said Chief Ladwig. "That is not uncommon at a hay barn fire." No injuries resulted from the explosion.
