Firefighting resources are stretched thin due to multiple regional incidents. Crews will work as quickly as possible to protect structures and contain the fire. Three barns have burned in the fire. No homes have been lost. And no known injuries to livestock. 

This fire is being handled by all local resources (not a conflagration status like other large fires across the state). Download the PulsePoint app to track incidents and their locations.
