Fire levels area barn

Arnold Bowman was milking cows in his barn north of Elmira on Wednesday evening when he became aware of a fire in the structure. He attempted to evacuate his animals, but the barn quickly became fully engulfed in flames; four cows, 10 calves, 500 chickens and three horses were lost in the fire that completely destroyed the building. More than 50 firefighters from three Woolwich stations were called out to battle the blaze. The fire is not considered suspicious, but an investigation is being conducted by the Woolwich Fire Department to determine the cause. Damage was estimated at $250,000.feature1
