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. .
