Barn destroyed by fire
Craig and Jennifer Hove lost some of their hogs in a barn fire in the early morning hours of Jan. 7, but Craig was able to save 79 of them through the back door. Their chickens were also spared from the fire. The Hoves said it may have been an electrical problem that started the fire. Their farm is just sourth of Staples on 490th Street.
Jennifer said despite the major loss, she was thankful that it wasn’t a house fire and no one was hurt.
