HARTLAND — A fire destroyed a barn this afternoon on Wruck Road.

Observers said they called 911 immediately and then watched as flames consumed the barn. Before emergency responders could even get to the blaze at 3876 Wruck Road, the barn was fully consumed and explosions — believed to be coming from propane tanks in the barn — could be heard.

Neighbors had reported that animals were in the barn and the homeowners were not home. There has been no word, however, on the fate of the animals.

The fire was so intense that it started melting the side of a house right next to a huge propane cylinder.

Once on the scene, Gasport command wasted no time in calling for assistance from Hartland and Middleport fire companies in order to protect the other structures, including the home and another barn.

A full engine crew from Wrights Corners that was clearing the Niagara County Jail was also brought into the scene to help assist the other departments.

A damage estimate was not immediately available.

The fire was so hot that the siding on this home started to melt.
