Large barn fire in rural Logan County

A structure fire destroyed a machinery barn near Ridgeway Sunday morning around 10:15.

Firefighters from Bokescreek, Rushcreek, Ridgeway, and Mt. Victory responded to Phil Ramsey's farm at 7853 State Route 292 North.

Bokescreek Fire Chief Don Detrick said the fire was reported by a passerby.

Tractors, gravity wagons, and a Bobcat were lost in the blaze.

Firefighters were able to stop the fire from spreading to a nearby barn.

Detrick said the cause appears accidental, but the fire remains under investigation.

Authorities said the fire caused between $250,000 to $300,000 worth of damage.

No one was injured.

Crews were on scene for about three hours.
