Man Sets Own Barn on Fire


A Boone County resident causes an emergency response when he decided to burn his barn down, but didn’t tell anyone about it.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 3500 block of Carlson Road for the fire after motorists on I-90 saw it and phoned it in.  Nearby Belvidere firefighters were even put on stand-by.  When crews arrived, however, they found the structure fully engulfed and it was set by the man who owned it.P

Police responded, but it’s unclear if he committed a crime.
