GREENE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – A barn in Beavercreek Township was destroyed in a fire Thursday.
Beavercreek Police confirmed that crews were at a fire in the 2000 block of Beaver Valley Road. The fire happened at the Siebenthaler Beavercreek Garden Center at the location just after 4 p.m.
Fire crews had difficulty fighting the fire due to the wind pushing it, and the hay, straw and fertilizer in the barn only spread the flames even more. The Beavercreek Fire Department said the fire began in the lower level of the barn before wind spread the flames to a small barn nearby and two vehicles.
The barn was a total loss. Crews said the barn had been at the location for almost 100 years.
Several fire crews were at the scene including Fairborn, WPAFB and Xenia Fire Department, Beavercreek Fire Department said. Smoke from the fire could be seen from miles around, and was even spotted by crews as they left the station.
Beavercreek Township fire crews told 2 NEWS no one was injured. It’s not clear what started the fire at this time.
We will update this developing story as we receive more information.
