STRATFORD, Wis. (WSAU) -- Stratford and McMillan firefighters battled a barn fire Wednesday northeast of Stratford.
The fire at 1726 Rock Road was reported shortly before 10:00 a.m., and the barn was fully engulfed in flames. The building had hay in the loft, and a large amount of saddles and tack inside. The six horses all escaped the fire.
Investigators don’t know the exact cause of the blaze, but suspect it may have started from a lightning strike.
