Update: Barn Destroyed In Four-Alarm Randolph Fire
RANDOLPH – Firefighters were still on scene at a massive four-alarm fire early Monday afternoon that destroyed a barn in Randolph.
Fire investigators from the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office have been summoned to the Jamestown Street blaze, which was reported around 10:30 a.m.
The barn was completely destroyed in the fire. Only charred beams remained standing, while white smoke continued to billow in the air two hours later.
Firefighters from Little Valley, Randolph, East Randolph, Kennedy and Conewango were dispatched.
According to the property owner, the structure was used as a barn for cows and horses as well as a vehicle repair shop.
It is believed at least three vehicles were destroyed in the fire. Two cows and two horses were in the barn at the time of the blaze, although the animals were reportedly out of structure by the time first responders arrived.
A fire chief from Randolph said a nearby house was saved from the fire. Strong winds were pushing flames to the adjacent home, which sustained minor fire damage. A church next door also received minor damage.
