Crews from three counties fight barn fire


Crews from three counties are battled a two-alarm barn fire in West Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Tuesday afternoon.

Someone called 911 just after 4:45 p.m. to report the fire on the 100 block of West Ridge Road. Crews from Dauphin and Lebanon counties helped to fight the fire.

Fire officials say part of the building was destroyed in the fire. The building is owned by S. Jay Williams Excavating. Fire officials say the fire started after fuel leaked from a truck, on which two people were working. Another person was cutting a pipe with a torch while vapors from the fuel were in the air. That created a flash fire.

No one was injured.
