Nine area fire departments responded to a barn fire late this afternoon. They were called out just after 4 o’clock to County Road TT in Holmen. Seven of the fire departments went to the scene of the fire, while two of the departments went to the Holmen Fire department to cover any other fire calls. A tractor caught fire inside a barn where hay was stored. The fire is out and the barn is destroyed, but no one was injured. Fire crews says County Road V and T-T could be slick because of the fire response. Holmen Fire Chief Buck Manley said, “If anyone lives out this way just be cautious because really anywhere between Farmington and Holmen on County V and Long Coulee because we’ve had fire apparatus and tenders driving back and forth and they’re going to be leaking some water, so there’s going to be some slick spots, but the county will be taking care of that hopefully.”
