Dubuque County Fire Destroys Barn

A fire destroyed a large barn in Dubuque County Wednesday morning. A few minutes before 11:30, deputies from the Dubuque County sheriff’s department, along with crews from the Epworth, Centralia and Dyersville fire departments responded to a barn fire in the 2300 block of Kidder Road. When they arrived the barn was fully engulfed in flames. Crews were able to get the fire under control, but the machinery and tools inside are considered a total loss. The estimated loss is an excess of $100,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but not considered suspicious in nature. No injuries were reported and the road was closed for a while as crews remained on scene to put out any hot spots. The barn is owned by Brian Kennedy.
