Fire Wrecks Barn in Monroe County

MIDDLE SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP — A fire in the Poconos wrecked a two-story barn full of livestock, vehicles and equipment.

The fire even sparked a brush fire near Marshalls Creek.

The fire started in a chicken coop and spread to the barn.

Fire crews said one firefighter who was saving the animals had to be treated for breathing in too much smoke, but all of the animals are okay.

It took fire crews most of the night to get the resulting brush fire under control.
