Officials say windy conditions helped spread the fire
Finksburg, Md (KM) Damage from a barn fire in Carroll County on Saturday afternoon is estimated at $100,000, according to the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office.
65 fire fighters were dispatched to the 3100 block of Stetson Way in Finksburg just before 2:00 PM, and spent one hour bringing the flames under control. There were no injuries.
The Fire Marshal’s Office says the blaze originated in a burn barrel outside of the barn. Windy conditions caused the flames to spread to nearby combustible materials, and then to the barn itself. .
