Massive four alarm fire destroys family owned barn

IREDELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - More than 80 firefighters from multiple agencies responded Tuesday night to a barn fire in western Iredell County.

The fire broke out just before 9 p.m. at a barn on the 200 block of Caleb Lane in Stony Point, near the Iredell and Alexander County line. WBTV was at the scene where large flames could be seen coming from the structure as firefighters fought to keep it under control.

Officials say between 80 and 100 firefighters responded to the large blaze, which is on a family owned farm. Firefighters say the barn, which had farming equipment and other items inside, was a total loss.

Investigators have not said what may have caused the fire, but they told WBTV that no injuries - human or animal - were reported.
