Three fire departments battled a barn fire Saturday afternoon on Carter Brothers Road.
About 3 p.m., LaRue County Fire Department was dispatched to the fire. Buffalo and Valley Creek departments were sent as backup.
Lindon Nevins said he was helping his son work on a car in the barn. Some gasoline made contact with a heater inside the building “and that’s all it took.”
Nevins fought the fire before firefighters arrived, blistering his arm and singeing his hair.
