Video: My T Acres fire: The day after
Submitted by Philip Anselmo on December 5, 2008 - 3:54pm
Earlier today, we met with Patricia Riner, one of the co-owners of My T Acres on Lewiston Road in Batavia, site of a massive barn fire yesterday—coverage on The Batavian has been ongoing. Riner told us about the nearly incalculable loss—all of the farm equipment in the barn, including tractors, planters, harvesters, fertilizer, tires, irrigation equipment; basketball hoops and gym equipment—everything was lost. Farmers and friends and family from all over the region have been coming by offering their support, says Riner. Folks came by with lunch today. Some have made offers of farm equipment to lend to help finish up the season's crop transfers. Others have been by to help clean up in any way they can.
There's still no word on what caused the fire nor any estimate on the damage. Riner said that they can only hope for the best going forward.
