Fire consumes barn at M and E Farms

A fire burned at M and E Farms Tuesday night, consuming one of the farm’s largest barns, as well as a swather, baler, tractor, and numerous other items.

Owner Matthew Lemieux says he believes that while he was doing some work on equipment, a spark must have landed in spray foam insulation and caught fire in the night.

Lemieux says the farm, located in the 5000 block of W. Prairie Avenue, will do what it can to gear up for spring planting.
