Strong winds spread a fire from a burning trash pit to a pole barn in Stockbridge Township Wednesday evening. The Stockbridge Deputy Fire Chief tells wilx.com the pit was about 40 feet from the barn. The owner called 911 around 5:45pm when he saw smoke. There were several horses in the barn, all of which escaped. Some farm equipment stored inside may have been damaged. Firefighters had to use a backhoe to remove burning hay from the barn before they could put the fire out. Nobody was injured and the fire did not spread to the surrounding corn fields.
