The only barn I can think of on either side of 59 would be an even mile south of the former Zarco intersection. Oh, well.

Thanks; I've added some more detailed info on the location. We normally don't print the names of property owners following fires.

Hey Ian

I know you are not from around these parts but east of Clinton Lake covers a lot of area. Technically, the fire was 7 miles SE of the lake and a quarter mile south of the former Zarco Corner south of town.

And the barn belonged to . . . ?

An important component of the story is missing here.
