Brookville Fire Kills Chickens

KSAL StaffJanuary 5, 2015

A fire in a carport damages two vehicles and kills over a dozen chickens.

Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski tells KSAL News that Saline County Rural Fire District #3 responded to the blaze that began around 6pm Friday night in a metal carport located at 104 S. Jewett Street in Brookville.

Homeowner Eric Riedel told deputies that he looked out his window and noticed a glow around the carport where he keeps chickens, ducks, goats and two vehicles.

The fire, which remains under investigation is blamed for killing 15 chickens and causing heat damage to a 2002 Ford Explorer and a 1997 Nissan sedan.

Riedel told investigators he had a heat lamp in the structure but it was unplugged.

Deputies say an alfalfa bail could have caused the fire that’s linked to $4,000 in loss and damages.
