Saturday, June 16, 2018 — The Northeast Nelson Fire Department responded Saturday morning to an address on Greer Road in Spencer County for a report of a barn on fire with a tractor inside. At 10:33 a.m., firefighters were dispatched to Greer Road — located off Weaver Road, which runs north of KY 48 just east of Fairfield –– for a barn on fire.

The first firefighters arrived and found the barn fully engulfed in flames. A second barn 20 yards away was threatened by the burning barn nearby. Crews used tankers and temporary dump tanks to shuttle water to the scene to fight the blaze. Firefighters reported control of the first after about 35 minutes. They were on the scene until about 12:45 p.m.
