The sharp eyes to two men on the roof of the Itron building in Owenton may have prevented serious fire damage to a barn behind Meadowview Monday.
The men saw smoke coming from a barn behind the grocery store and contacted the store owner Bud Forsee.
Luckily, the chief of the Owen County Volunteer Fire Department happens to work at Meadowview.
“Bud came and got me,” Chief Robb Chaney said.
With smoke rolling out of the barn, Chaney sounded the alarm while he and two other men fought back the fire by smothering it with dirt.
