Emporia, Kansas 01/09/2023 — Emporia Fire Department was dispatched to 251 Road 200 for a reported Barn Fire. Upon arrival, fire crews found a large machine shed that was fully engulfed with a collapsed roof. There was also a power line that was originally going to the machine shed that was on the ground and still energized. 

The fire was contained by a defensive fire attack from a distance until Four Rivers Electric Coop was able to arrive on scene and disconnect the power. The fire was then extinguished by fire crews using a combination of firefighting foam and fire hand lines. 

The cause was determined to be accidental from an unknown cause per Lyon County Sheriff’s Deputies.

The property owners are Michael and Kimberly Crouch.
