Five-alarm fire strikes Peterborough barn

PETERBOROUGH — A five-alarm fire destroyed a barn and killed a couple dozen chickens inside Sunday, authorities said.

About 80 firefighters at the scene were able to save an "old farm house" and a four-car garage with a work area above it at 155 Old Jaffrey Road, said Fire Chief Joseph Lenox.

Firefighters had "heavy fire on arrival" around 7 a.m. and took about an hour to bring the blaze under control. The 2.5-story barn, about 40 feet by 60 feet in size, was destroyed, he said.

"We don't believe it's suspicious," Lenox said.

Crews were able to get sheep, goats and a tractor out of the barn.
Firefighters from about a dozen towns reported to the scene.

No injuries were reported.
