La Junta Fire Department Responds to Barn Fire

At approx 905pm we responded to a reported structure fire east of La Junta on the South side of the highway. Upon arrival an outbuilding used to house animals was on fire.

A quick defensive attack knocked down the fire. Water shuttle ops were set up. During salvage and overhaul it was discovered that a few animals perished during the fire.

The cause of the fire was a faulty heat lamp that was being used and it had fallen to the ground on some straw and wood. No other injuries were noted.
