Fire destroys barn in Alexandria Bay | Jefferson County

ALEXANDRIA BAY – A fire destroyed a barn in the city of Alexandria Bay early Wednesday morning.

Plessis Fire Chief Mike Hunter said the cause of the fire was not yet known and there were no serious injuries to be reported.

Mr. Hunter said a tin roof had fallen down that required an excavator.

“We only started work again, it was just before 9 a.m.,” he said. “We had to bring an excavator because the tin roof fell off, and we had to use an excavator to move some of the beams, move some of the sheet metal … We pulled a lot of the stuff off and everything is getting these hotspots to trying to erase everything we could so we wouldn’t be called back for resuscitation. “

The boss said the barn was “almost level” before the fire department could arrive.

There were no injuries to the cattle as they did not appear to be living in the barn, he added.

The only building affected was the barn.
