On the above date and time, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office along with South Dakota State University Police, Brookings Fire Department, Brookings Ambulance and Volga Fire Department responded to the above location for a dairy barn which had caught fire. Prior to responding, employees had evacuated the building and began releasing all dairy cattle from the building. Upon arrival, flames were visible from the north side of the building. After the cattle were removed, crews were able to extinguish the flames. The fire appeared to have started in a manure pumping room and spread to other parts of the barn. The total extent of the damage to the building is unknown at this time. No cattle died as a result of the fire. This incident remains under investigation with the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office.
