Townsend Barn Fire--Monday, February 14, 2011

Firefighters from Townsend, Ashby, Lunenburg, and Mason, N.H. were at the scene of a barn fire off of West Meadow Road in Townsend on Monday morning. The barn belonged to Townsend resident Jim Craven who built custom homes and cabinetry through his business Homes by Craven. The building, which was a total loss, contained all of his tools that he used for his job that he'd been doing for nearly 57 years and the estimated loss was about $1 million.
