County firefighters respond to blaze at barn in Howard

Carroll firefighters helped battle a fire that destroyed a barn just south of the Carroll-Howard county line Wednesday evening, Howard fire and rescue officials said.

Three calves were killed, and damage was estimated at $106,000.

Fire units from Howard and Montgomery counties also responded to the fire at about 6:42 p.m. Calves and cows were rescued from the burning 60-by-80-foot barn, officials said.

The barn was next to the Lisbon Fire Department in the 1300 block of Route 94. Fire officials are investigating whether the fire may have been started by a barn conveyor system.

Nearly 70 firefighters from Sykesville and Mount Airy joined Lisbon and West Friendship of Howard County and Damascus and Laytonsville of Montgomery County in bringing the blaze under control by 8:25 p.m. Units left the scene by 9:45 p.m., said Lt. Robert Wiseman of the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue.

No one was injured.

Sykesville sent an engine to fill in at the West Friendship station, while Winfield transferred to Mount Airy.
