CLARENDON – Firefighters responded to a fire at 16714 Hinds Rd. this evening after report of a structure fire. The owner of the property knocked down a barn this summer and was attempting a controlled burn, firefighters said.

But the fire got bigger than expected and firefighters were called to keep it from spreading to any of the nearby structures.

Clarendon and Murray firefighters were dispatched to the scene at 5:11 p.m. They used the Holley ladder truck to direct water down on the fire.

“Nothing of value was damaged,” said Bob Freida, president of the Clarendon Fire Company.
