Units from the Richwood Police Department, Northern Union County Fire and EMS District, Leesburg Township Fire Department, Liberty Township Fire Department and Scioto Valley Fire District responded to a barn fire at 12654 Mulvane Road at 12:57 p.m. Thursday. Northern Union County Chief Randy Riffle said the fire was accidentally caused by an agricultural burn after the wind blew sparks toward the barn, causing it to catch fire. Riffle said no nearby structures were damaged. The barn was unoccupied and there were no injuries associated with the fire. He said the barn was a total loss, but the owners were already planning to tear it down in the near future.
