A Galax structure burned to the ground on Feb. 23 at 9:34 a.m. in what was described as a “barn fire, fully involved,” according to Galax Volunteer Fire Captain Mike Ayers.
“Firefighters arrived to find a 20’ x 40’ single-story barn completely involved in fire,” said Ayers afterwards. He noted that the structure, in the middle of a field, had no people in it and the fire caused no injury.
“The fire was quickly controlled,” noted Ayers. “However, the structure was a total loss.”
