Friday afternoon, a two-alarm fire quickly overtook a pullet barn at Trillium Farms in Croton. According to a statement released by the farm:
We are deeply grateful that all of our team members are accounted for, and that no one was hurt in the fire. However, the barn did house a flock of hens, and we understand from firefighters that the barn likely is a total loss.
This is a terrible situation, and we are devastated the flock could not be saved.
Multiple fire departments, including volunteers, have responded, and we are thankful for their swift actions to try to protect adjacent barns and flocks from harm.
We appreciate everyone’s concern and patience during this difficult time.
No employees were harmed in the incident.
