Fire destroys farmhouse near Pine Island


A fire destroyed a farmhouse southwest of Pine Island Friday night.

Crews responded at about 8 p.m. to the 27,000 block of 545th Street, where the vacant house was engulfed in flames. Firefighters remained on scene for nearly three hours, and were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to nearby buildings. But the house itself is a total loss. 

No one was hurt.

A worker at the farm said the house had been unoccupied for two years, and was in the process of being torn down.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

In addition to the Pine Island Fire Department, the West Concord Fire Department provided mutual aid.
