Animal Barns on Fire at the Darke County Fairgrounds

A large fire has broken out at the Darke County Fairgrounds tonight (Friday). The fire seems to be centered near the Cow Palace, although WHIO reports multiple structures seem to be on fire. Hazy smoke (and the stench of fire) could be seen (and smelled) even on the east side of town.

Multiple departments are battling the blaze and police and the sheriff's department have blocked off stretches of the roads surrounding the fairgrounds.

I will update with more/confirmed details as I have them.

Update: Jennifer Clark shared this incredible video on Facebook.
