March 1, 2013

A barn fire at the home of Cowboy Church pastor Greg Spann resulted in the complete destruction of the structure Friday afternoon. Spann and his wife, Francis, returned home from lunch to find the barn in flames and completely engulfed. Two horses were in the barn at the time, but escaped after Spann opened the barn door. Neither horse was burned, but Spann called a veterinarian to check the horses for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. Units from the Turtle Creek, Haskell and Traskwood fire departments responded to the call.
