Goats and chickens perish in Chelan Barn Fire

Barn Fire

CHELAN, WA – A Lake Chelan area barn was destroyed in a predawn fire Sunday. Chelan Fire and Rescue reported in a Facebook post that crews responded to a structure fire off Henderson Road that was reported shortly before 6 am Sunday.

On arrival crews found a 20 x 30 foot two-story barn fully involved. Two Chelan County Sheriff’s deputies had arrived earlier. Crews had to overhaul 300 feet of hose line through heavy snow because there were no nearby fire hydrants.

There were reports of chickens and goats inside the barn. Officials say none of the animals survived. The fire’s cause is under investigation. Manson fire crews also responded. Crews were challenged with severe weather conditions including temperatures that plummeted to 9 degrees.
