Barn Torched In Mendota

Posted by wlpo on April 30, 2011

No one was hurt in a large barn fire in Mendota.

A 911 call came to Mendota Fire at nine Friday night about a barn fully engulfed on Route 251, a mile north of town.  Mendota fire officials say the barn is owned by Gleim Farms and was in use with about 600 bales of hay inside.  There was no livestock in the barn.  The barn was destroyed.

Mendota and about a half dozen other fire departments were on the scene for over two hours.  The stretch of Route 251 near the fire scene was closed during the blaze.
