A weekend fire destroyed a Milford Township horse barn, but didn’t result in any direct harm or fatalities among dozens of horses housed in the structure.
The Milford Fire Department responded to a barn fire on Labadie Road during the late evening hours of Saturday, April 7.
According to Milford Fire Chief Larry Waligora, the call for the fire came in at 10:23 p.m. It was a fully-involved fire by the time firefighters arrived on the scene, he said.
He added that all the horses in the barn were evacuated before Milford fire crews arrived, and that his department received mutual aid from Lyon Township, the city of Wixom, Commerce Township and Highland Township firefighters.
According to Waligora, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department is conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire, which burnt the barn to the ground.
