FABIUS, N.Y. -- Firefighters were called to the scene of a barn fire in the town of Fabius Sunday afternoon.

The fire happened at the corner of Rowley Jerome Road and Bryan Road around 3 p.m.

Investigators believe the fire started in an area where machinery and other flammable materials were kept.

Crews had to use a back hoe to remove burned vehicles from inside the barn. Fortunately, they say the weather wasn't as big of a problem as it could have been.

"It's always a challenge. Luckily, the driveway was all plowed. You see in the newspapers all the time, keep your hydrants shoveled out, keep your driveways open. You know, the easier it is for us to get in, the faster it is and the more we can save,” said Fabius Fire Chief Ron Wheatley.

There were no animals or people inside at the time, and no injuries were reported.
