Andover, NY, Barn Destroyed In Sunday Evening Fire

Andover, NY Barn Fire

As my children and I were traveling to Stony Brook Park
on Sunday, May 24th, we saw a barn fire just outside
Andover NY sometime around 6 or 6:30 in the evening.

As we approached the barn, all we saw was some
smoke coming from inside - no fire.

Within 3 minutes, the entire barn was completely
engulfed in flames.

I couldn't believe how quickly the fire spread. It
was reported that the fire interrupted phone service
to Andover, Greenwood, and Jasper. Service was
restored by 4:00 am Monday morning.

When the firemen arrived just a couple minutes
later, they couldn't get anywhere near the thing -
it was so hot. Video will be posted later.

it was my parents barn, there's nothing left but the foundation. It also took out the milk-house and a storage shed ten feet beyond that.
