Barn Fires In Pocomoke Area Keep Firefighters Busy

Wednesday evening between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm Stockton Fire Company along with other local fire departments were called to two separate barn fires. A barn on Sheephouse Road and Jones Road, owned by the Overholt family was fully involved when fire departments arrived. Another barn at 4542 Payne Road, owned by the Aydelotte family  was also reported burning out of control.

Before the evening was over firefighters were also called to the scene of a woods fire on Silva Road.

Both barns were unoccupied at the time, there were no injuries  and the Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
I have to use the statement from the person that emailed me this info: "Sadly these two barns  were iconic to the area and have been there for many many years."
