Hollis blaze consumes welding company barn

Just after 1 p.m. today, coworker Aislinn Sarnacki and I came upon this barn fire on the Hollis Center property of B.C. Welding Co. Fire trucks were just arriving at that point, so it couldn’t have been called in more than five or 10 minutes earlier.

Buxton fire trucks were pulling in to join hometown Hollis crews.

It will likely be some time before the blaze is completely subdued and firefighters can take a look for causes. I’ll try to keep an eye out for updates as the situation develops.
