Multiple agencies assisted the Bedford County Fire Department at the Forest Shadows Farm located at 1145 Hwy 64 West, Tuesday afternoon when a fire broke out.First arriving firefighters reported the barn to be fully engulfed. Tankers from Wheel, Unionville and Deason, as well as mutual aid from Chapel Hill and Marshall County assisted crews with bringing the fire under control. Traffic on Hwy 64 was blocked due to water shuttle operations and heavy smoke blanketing the roadway. The road re-opened shortly after 6 pm. Due to the nature of the barn contents, firefighters remained on scene throughout the evening while moving bales of hay and other materials around to extinguish hot spots. No injuries were reported and the damage amount is unknown at this time.
