SHOREWOOD – No one was injured when a fire damaged a barn in Shorewood on Saturday night. Stations 1 and 2 of the Troy Fire Protection District responded to a fire at 11:45 p.m. at the Baltz Farm off Route 52 in Shorewood after a passer-by saw smoke, Station 1 Capt. Dave Giese said.
The fire was confined to the barn, which was a standalone structure for machinery, Giese said.
Fire agencies from Channahon, Lockport, Minooka and Plainfield assisted with the fire because of the adverse weather conditions and lack of fire hydrants in the area, Giese said. The Troy Fire Protection District is investigating the cause of the fire, and the extent of the damage is unknown, Giese said.
