Fire destroys calving barn on Zoss farm Tuesday evening

On Tuesday, April 2, the Letcher Fire Department was called to a fire at the Charlie and Christy Zoss farm. The fire proved to be too much for just one department, so the Woonsocket Fire Department was also called onto the scene to help fight the blaze. The fire destroyed a large calving barn, but was contained to just the one building. 

The barn was a total loss and has since been cleaned up from the yard. The family also lost a couple cows, calves, and some goats along with some equipment, saddles, and hay in the fire. The family plans to rebuild, as they were using the barn for the current calving season and will need a replacement. 

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined and is still under investigation.
