ALVATON, Ky. (WBKO) - Crews were called to the scene of two barn fires in Warren County on Wednesday, September 15 just before 5:00 a.m. A barn was on fire on Dye Ford Road in Alvaton, and another fire was reported on Plano Road.

Multiple agencies, including area fire departments and the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, were called to the scene. No injuries have been reported. Investigators will work to determine the cause.

Plano Assistant Fire Chief Kent Charlton says the fires were unusual and suspicious.

The state fire marshal and Kentucky State Police were called in to investigate.

Rickie Gibbs the son-in-law of the Dye Ford Road barn owner hopes they find out what happened.

“Just material things missing, gone now. There was a lot of memories in that barn been around here a long, long time,” says Gibbs.

Gibbs says the barn had been in his family for more than 120 years and adds that he does not believe it was an accident.

“You can’t replace that barn. There’s no way you can put a new barn I’m not going to get the memories back. It’s not going to be the same. There is no coincidence whatsoever of two barns burning down within a quarter of a mile of one another,” added Gibbs.

No injuries have been reported.
