Millville Fire

Firefighters from Zumbro Falls responded to a raging barn fire northeast of Millville.

KTTC TV reports the call for help came about 1:30 a.m. Friday from Dwaine and Don Sexton's dairy farm operation.

The Zumbro Falls Fire Chief said the Sexton brothers were able to get the 120 cows out in time, and no one was hurt.

But the fire took the milking parlor and much of the freestyle barn structure and damaged a Harvestore three-quarters full of shelled corn.  The chief said the loss is a big one---possibly around four or five hundred thousand dollars after adding up the damage to the structures, the milking equipment and a skid loader and other equipment lost....
