Barn Burns on Bertrand Street

Fire crews in Potter County continue to monitor hot-spots of a fire that destroyed a barn late Monday afternoon.

Around 4:30 PM, a fire broke out on north Bertrand street, northeast of Amarillo. Officials at the scene tell us the spark from a lawn mower is believed to have started this fire.

High winds helped spread the fire that quickly moved to this barn. Officials with the Texas Forest Service and the Potter County Fire Department managed to stop the fire from spreading to any other structures.
