Firefighters battle barn fire as 2013 arrives

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters in Egg Harbor Township battled a fire, right as 2013 arrived.

It happened just before midnight in a wooded area near Mill Road and Ridge Avenue.

Officials say callers reported seeing a large barn in the woods engulfed in flames.

Several departments responded to the scene, including fire investigators and forest fire units.

The location of the fire down a single road made access to the area difficult, and firefighters worked for more than an hour to extinguish the blaze.

Authorities say the barn was recently purchased by a nearby church.

No injuries were reported, but investigators are calling the fire suspicious at this time.
