A large 14 stall barn was destroyed by fire late Monday afternoon on North May Street in Southern Pines. When firefighters arrived in the scene, there were flames and heavy smoke showing.
Firefighters from numerous agencies responded and were on the scene within minutes and began aggressively attacking the fire. Remarkably, they had the fire under control within 30 minutes. The barn was not occupied at the time as it was being renovated.
The craftsman style barn had been undergoing an extensive renovation for quite some time. Twin Fields Farm was purchased just a few years ago and has been turned into an event venue recently hosting events such as weddings. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Responding to the scene were units from Southern Pines, Aberdeen, Pinebluff, Pinehurst, Cypress Pointe, Whispering Pines, Seven Lakes, Craines Creek, Moore County Public Safety, Moore County EMS, and the Moore County Sheriff’s Department.
