Saline firefighters helped knocked down a barn fire at a horse farm on Austin Road in Bridgewater Township.

Firefighters from Saline and Manchester were dispatched to the 10300 block of Austin Road at 4:08 p.m., July 31.

Saline firefighters arrived first and found about 100 bales of straw on fire in the large barn.

“The call came quick and we got a good hit on it. The barn was on a concrete block, so that also made a big difference as we were able to contain the fire,” Saline fire chief Craig Hoeft said. “We were very fortunate.”

No people or animals were injured in the blaze.
