Authorities believe a barn fire and a rash of vehicle vandalism near New Riegel could be connected. The Review-Times reports firefighters were called to 4365 South Township Road 85 for a barn fire Sunday morning. The structure was completely destroyed. The fire is being called suspicious because there is no electricity in the barn.
Seneca County Sheriff’s Deputy Dennis Wilkinson tells the newspaper that the office received at least nine reports of windows being broken out of cars in the same region. It doesn’t appear anything was stolen from the cars.
The State Fire Marshall’s Office will be looking into the barn fire. Investigators are trying to drum up leads related to the car vandalism.
