Cave City firefighter Brian Carter examines a March 23 fire near Sidney which destroyed the barn of Brandon and Melinda Schulz. The fire is believed to have started when a bale of hay landed on a hot wire. The family lost the barn, hay and a combine in the fire. Crews with the Sidney, Cave City and Evening Shade Fire Departments responded. The family also has several poultry houses which were not damaged in the blaze. The Schulz's were the Sharp County Farm Family of the Year in 2009. Both were thankful no one was hurt in the incident.
