(Stuart) A Pole Barn and the miscellaneous equipment inside were completely destroyed by a fire Tuesday night near Stuart. Stuart Fire Chief John Schwinger tells KSOM/KS95 news that they were dispatched to 3424 105th Street just east of Stuart at around 8:00 p.m.
"When we arrived the pole barn and its' contents were fully engulfed in flames," stated Chief Schwinger. "It appears something from a brush pile on the westside of the structure started the fire."
The Dexter and Menlo Fire Departments provided mutual aide. It took fire fighters about 2 1/2 hours to put out the fire.
