Chicken barn fire

Crews battle a chicken barn fire in Adams County Saturday.

Crews battled an early morning barn fire Saturday that housed thousands of chickens.

Emergency crews from several different counties in Pennsylvania and a few from Maryland were called to the barn along Oxford Road off Route 15 in Adams County around 5:48 a.m. Saturday.

Crews say, when they arrived on scene, flames could be seen shooting through the roof of the barn.

Nobody was seriously injured, but the barn housed at least 100,000 chickens.

Someone on scene tweeted that crews were having problems putting out the fire because of water problems.

An investigation is underway to determine what caused the fire.
