Historic barn leveled by fire

CORNWALL — In a tragic prelude to New Year’s Day, an historic three-story barn in a picturesque section of Cornwall was leveled by a fire on Thursday.

At 7:57 a.m. a call was dispatched to 256 Town St. for reports of a barn fire on a dairy farm. A few farm workers who were tending the property saw the fire that reportedly began in the left front part of the building, said Gordon Ridgway, first selectman and volunteer firefighter. The witnesses then alerted authorities.
