Update: Guilian farms burned down once before, 25 years ago. Jamie Guilian says Sunday’s blaze was history repeating itself.
The community is coming out to help with emotional and financial support. A Gofundme was set up for the family to help them cope with the loss of their farming equipment and damage to the property.
Over a dozen fire departments from Honeoye, Livonia, and Livingston county responded to an enormous barn fire at around 10:30 Sunday night.
The barn, which was part of a rural potato farm, was deemed a total loss.
Firefighters tell us this was an especially difficult blaze due to how isolated it was. Several water tankers had to be driven in.
A hazmat situation was later called when firefighters learned there was a large amount of fertilizer nearby that could contaminate the nearby creek. The fertilizer was contained.
The farm housed no animals and there are no injuries reported.
The cause is still under investigation.
