BOSTON, N.Y. -- More than 20 companies responded to a fire on Cole Road in Boston, N.Y. Monday afternoon.
Hamburg Dispatch received a call about the fire at a barn, that included a garage, Monday morning, according to a Boston Fire Company Auxiliary official manning the phones as crews were on the scene of the fire.
No one has been hurt in the blaze and several horses who lived in or near the structure have not been harmed as they were out in a pasture at the time.
Crews from as far as Lakeville responded to the fire at the barn, which also included living quarters. The heat Monday and the structure being 2,000 feet from the road presented challenges.
More manpower was being requested at about 3:40 p.m. Monday.
The building is not located near any fire hydrant, so tanker after tanker of water was being sent to the barn to put out the flames.
Assistant Boston Fire chief figures said they easily used at least 200,000 gallons of water to battle the blaze.
Due to the heat, crews were rotated at the scene. Excavators were also being used to remove hay from the barn.
