Firefighters turn a hose on a fire that destroyed a barn adjacent to the house at 314 Lincoln Drive in Lynn Valley on Tuesday. Although the fire was fought by members of the Stoney Creek, Watauga, and Hampton/Valley Forge volunteer fire departments and Elizabethton Fire Department, the barn could not be saved. SCVFD Chief Jason Shaw said he speculated an electrical malfunction may have started the blaze, which took no human lives, but may have killed several chickens that were cooped inside.
