No word on cause of fire that destroyed barn; no human or animal injuries


BRADFORD, Vermont — Vermont fire investigators haven't determined what started a fire that destroyed a former dairy barn in Bradford.

There were no injuries in the fire that was reported late Sunday afternoon, but owner Mickey Appleton says several of the two-dozen head of cattle had singed fur.

The Valley News ( ) reports that the main portion of the century-old barn and an addition, which was built in 1965, held scores of 600-pound round hay bales at the time of the fire.

Mickey Appleton says he plans to rebuild a smaller barn for the cattle, but at 70 he feels he's too old to rebuild completely.
