[ARCHIVED] Firefighters Battle Barn Fire in Sherwood, Prevent Fire from Spreading to Adjacent Structures.


Firefighters were called to a reported barn fire in the 22000 block of SW Lebeau Rd in Sherwood just after 2:40 pm today. Multiple callers to 911 reported a fully involved barn fire, with fire threatening nearby structures and spreading to an adjacent field. First arriving firefighters from station 33 in Sherwood found a large barn heavily involved in fire, with spot fires in a nearby field and nearby structures threatened by the flames. Warm afternoon temperatures and moderate wind in the area carried embers away from the fire, causing the spot fires on adjacent property.

As more firefighters arrived on scene, they worked quickly to contain the barn fire and extinguish the spot fires in the adjacent field. Firefighters also worked to protect two nearby structures. Both structures were saved and sustained only minor heat damage. Because of the rural location firefighters had to shuttle water to the scene using water tenders.  Approximately 32 firefighters brought the fire under control in 40 minutes.

A TVF&R fire investigator was able to determine the cause of the fire to be accidental and related to bee keeping activities that were occurring in the barn at the time the fire started. Unfortunately, the barn was a total loss. There were no injuries reported, and no animals were housed in the barn. There is no damage estimate available currently.
