PFEIFER — The Ellis County Rural Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at Saeretza and Schoenchen Road in Pfeifer at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
Upon arrival, a sheriff’s deputy found a barn fully engulfed. Fire crews used three attack lines to extinguish the fire.
Twenty-three firefighters were on scene from Victoria, Hays and Ellis until approximately 10 am. The cause of the fire is undetermined after investigation, but most likely started from the improper use of electrical cords, according to Darin Myers, Ellis County Fire Chief and Emergency Manager.
