A barn was destroyed by fire on Klaas Martens’ farm in the town of Torrey late Saturday night.
A Yates County Sheriff’s Deputy that was on patrol spotted flames coming from the Ridge Road barn and woke up the family. Firefighters from Dresden, Penn Yan, Benton, Bellona, Potter, Himrod, Dundee and Branchport-Keuka Park were called to the scene. The barn and its contents, which included equipment and livestock, were ruled a total loss. No injuries were reported.
The investigation into the cause is continuing.
