An official from the State Fire Marshal’s office is being brought to the site of a Taylorsville barn fire that occurred on Monday night to determine how the blaze began.

Polk County Public Safety Director Randy Lacey – who is also the chief of the Volunteer Fire Department among his many duties – reported this morning that it’ll be March 8 before the Fire Marshal’s office sends an investigator to help see if a cause can be determined.

The fire – that broke out around 8 p.m. on Monday at 191 Harris Road – completely destroyed a barn full of hay, farming equipment and fuel that was stored within.

No injuries were reported on Monday night after the fire was out, Lacey said.
