Barn Fire Believed To Be Deliberately Set

The Putnam County sheriff's department says somebody who was drinking beer inside a barn on Old Mill Road over the weekend may have set the structure on fire. Deputy Jeremy Nash says the barn is located at the end of Old Mill Road, which is also known as Old Cane Creek Road. The owner told Nash that the only thing in the barn was a couple of feed troughs, but says he found two beer cans that he believed someone had left there over the weekend. The cost to replace the structure was estimated at some $10,000.
