Numerous local fire departments were busy Tuesday afternoon, as Simpsonville, Shelbyville and Shelby County fire fighters responded to a blaze at multiple barns on Burks Branch Road, just north of the bypass.
EMS also responded to the scene, but no injuries were reported.
Cowherd said the fire is under investigation and labeled it as suspicious.
“There is no reason why the fire should have started,” Shelby County Fire Chief Bobby Cowherd said. “Investigators are looking into it as we speak.”
