Up in smoke

Friday, March 21, 2014

ALPENA -- Sparks from a cutting torch started a fire in a barn full of round hay bales last Tuesday at the farm of Terry Blackburn.

The fire produced more smoke than flames but could be seen from miles away.

The Alpena Fire Department responded, with units from the South Carroll County and Green Forest departments assisting.
