Barn Fire In Lexington Looks Suspicious

Firefighters rushed to put out the fire a barn early Thursday morning on Enterprise Drive, right off Old Frankfort Pike.

"We have something on fire reaching ceiling level in the first bay of this barn. We have a pretty good fire going," said Major Glenn Phillips of the Lexington Fire Department.

"We had a pile of wood planks, beside that was a pile of tires. Directly above that, we had hay in the barn. We did have involvement of the second floor," he said.

A driver heading down Old Frankfort Pike called 9-1-1. Fire crews immediately called this fire suspicious.

"We had enough here to call investigators. We had some unexplainable components to the fire which leads us to believe, well, something could not be explained properly," Phillips said.

Woodall Construction owns the property. Employees working on the land tell 27 NEWSFIRST the barn was slated to be torn down within the next few days.

Nobody was inside the barn at the time crews arrived. They say nobody got hurt.
