FARM FIRE - A lightening strike is thought to have started a fire in one of the barns located on the Wheeler Farm, Wheeler Road, Linesville, last Tuesday evening, destroying a large amount of hay and pieces of equipment stored in the barn. No animals were harmed. The Wheeler Farm is one of the largest farm enterprises in Crawford County. As shown above, fires were still burning the next day amid a large amount of smoke. Nearly a dozen fire companies were called out including some from nearby Ohio to fight the blaze at its peak.
