SOMERSET TWP. HILLSDALE CO. (WILX) - Fire destroys a pole barn at the Jerome Country Market Tuesday afternoon. The pole barn is next to the main store, but damage did not spread to the market itself. A worker at the market says no one was hurt. The remnants of the building are being demolished.

The pole barn is less than two years old. It was used as a site for special events and the well-known buck pole held annually at the market. Firefighters from several companies came to put down the blaze. The cause of the fire is still being determined.
