Fire rips through barn in Dunstable

Posted: Updated:
DUNSTABLE, Mass. (WHDH) - A big fire at a barn in Dunstable that required crews from five towns to put out was made worse by the presence of ammunition.

Fire officials said that there were some shells stored in the barn. Some went off due to the fire that ripped through the structure Saturday morning.

Investigators believe the fire was caused by a space heater.

Officials also said that there was a propane tank in the barn at the time of the fire, so it's a wonder that nobody was seriously injured.

Chickens were also in the barn at the time, but they made it out.

The owner of the home on the property received minor burns but is expected to be okay.
