ST. ALBANS — A fire broke out at a barn on Dunsmore Road in St. Albans yesterday.

The fire started at around 5:30 p.m. in a portion of a large former dairy barn that was being used for horses, pigs, and storage.

A worker was able to enter the first floor and rescue the pigs and get all the animals out before that portion of the barn became fully involved.

A few minutes later that portion of the barn, as well as a connected storage shed was engulfed in flames. 

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to this area and the fire did not spread to the large back portion of the barn or the nearby house.

Fire investigators arrived this morning and began investigating.

At this time they say the fire is not considered suspicious but the cause is listed as undetermined.
