East Whiteland Fire Company along with the help of six other companies, responded to the barn fire around just before 3:00 p.m. on Friday. When crews arrived, the fire had spread to the woods around the barn and to a nearby chicken coop. No large animals were hurt in the fire, however a number of chickens are missing.
