Trafalgar firefighter battle blaze in barn

The Trafalgar Fire Department battled a large fire in a barn Sunday evening.

According to the fire department, they were called to the 6000 block of Spearsville Road at about 6:38 p.m. Sunday and found the large barn engulfed in flames. The barn contained about 300 bales of hay along with farm equipment and implements. With assistance from other area firefighters, it took about six hours to get the fire out but the hay bales continued to smolder for hours.

One firefighter was slightly injured and the barn and its contents are a total loss. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
