Barn holding chicken waste catches fire on NC State campus


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A barn on NC State’s Lake Wheeler Road research farm caught fire early Monday morning.

Fire officials say the three-sided building was holding chicken waste.

While authorities do not believe the fire was intentionally set, they told CBS North Carolina that the same barn caught fire several years ago.

Firefighters from Garner, Swift Creek, Fairview and Fuquay-Varina responded to the scene. Wake EMS sent an ambulance as a precaution, but no injuries were reported.
