BARRE – A barn on West Barre Road burns in a fire tonight. The barn is owned by Ken Vivlamore 14028 West Barre Rd. Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at about 7:45 p.m.

Vivlamore had just started a fire in a wood stove in the barn for his dog, Nell. His dog didn’t survive the fire.

Vivlamore said he recently put new piping in the stove and it seemed to be working really well. He also lost many tools in the blaze.

The fire was contained to the smaller barn. Albion and Barre firefighters are shown in this photo, as well as Deputy S. Fox of the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office. Barre Fire Chief James Neal said fire investigators would look for the cause of the fire.

Barre firefighters get water on the hot spots.
