YELLOW SPRINGS - Emergency crews were called to the scene of a fully-involved barn fire around 9:45 a.m. Thursday morning.
Miami Township Fire and Rescue, Hustead Fire, and Greene County Sheriffs responded to the blaze on Yellow Springs Fairfield Road, near the intersection of Snypp Road, just outside of Yellow Springs. The blaze was in a barn owned by Ralph Acton.
Acton says he had placed a smoke bomb inside the barn to combat a problem with raccoons. He noticed smoke coming out of the barn and attempted to put out the blaze with a fire extinguisher.
