Fire Destroys Lisbon Dairy Barn, 30 To 40 Cows Killed


Lisbon volunteer firefighters were unable to save an organic dairy barn belonging to an assistant fire chief Wednesday night.

The fire killed between 30 and 40 cows on the Lee Morrison farm on Pray Road in Lisbon.

The family had just finished milking and had retired to the house for the night when a family member looked out a window and discovered the barn ablaze.

Firefighters were able to save two silos and a nearby house.

Several pieces of machinery were also lost in the fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation but is not considered suspicious.
