A firefighter extinguishes remnants removed from a barn that burned late Wednesday morning on Reynolds Farm Road near Grovetown.

 

No one was injured Wednesday morning when a barn near Grovetown caught fire.

A cable television repair man saw smoke coming from a metal barn at Reynolds Farm and Becky Lynn Stables ay 1040 Reynolds Farm Road at about 10:45 a.m., according to Columbia County Fire Rescue Batt. Chief Gary Thigpen.

The farm, owned by Don Reynolds and his father before him, is the one for which the road is named.

“It was scary,” said Reynolds, who was in a nearby shed working when the cable man told him and family members about the fire. “We didn’t open that door. We saw fire in there.”

The barn contained hay and farm supplies.

Thigpen said he couldn’t determine the exact origin and cause of the fire, but said he suspects old electrical wiring.

Grovetown Department of Public Safety firefighters arrived first, followed by Columbia County personnel. They extinguished the fire that burned much of the inside of the barn. Wood-framed stables on each side were not damaged.

“You don’t appreciate these guys until you need them,” Reynolds said. “They were ‘Johnny on the spot.’”

Luckily the firefighters

Luckily the firefighters responded promptly to extinguish the fire before causing more severe damages. Now, the owner has to rebuild the barn and make sure he installs a proper electrical wiring to prevent such events from happening. For this job, he should call in a specialist, like most people do when they have to fix basement cracks in Staten Island, because nothing can compare with a specialist's training and equipment, don't you think?

Old wiring have caused many

Old wiring have caused many fires lately, that's why old buildings in general should be periodically inspected by an electrician, to avoid such unhappy situations. People who will choose a beach style modular home in Brick will have nothing to fear in this regard, especially since the contractors will build the house considering all their specifications.

The prompt respond from the firefighters have helped in controlling the fire from spreading into the neighborhood and thus by reducing further damages. Barn owners should always take care about the old electrical wirings used and if so, do change them at regular intervals.

Dealing with fire is not an easy thing. Whoever goes through that will advise the other to always have insurance to their assets. You never know when bad luck turns to you. Some fire sprinkler systems can be very in handy in this kind of situations. It's never a waste to take safety precautions.
