ADNA FIRE CAUSE NOT CLEAR
• The cause of the fire that struck a dairy farm will be recorded as undetermined but it began in a room that housed an air compressor. “I didn’t see anything else that could have caused it,” Fire Investigator Ted McCarty said today. Crews called early Sunday morning to the 400 block of Bunker Creek Road found fire in the milking parlor and were able to keep it from spreading to the adjacent barn that contained some 200 cows.
