First Published Mar 05 2014 11:29 am • Last Updated Mar 05 2014 12:51 pm

Cache County fire investigators were trying Wednesday to determine what caused a blaze that gutted the Paradise Equestrian Barn.

Members of the Paradise Volunteer Fire Department and Cache County Fire District crews rushed to the fire, at 9800 S. 380 East, just after 6 p.m. Tuesday. They arrived to find the structure fully engulfed in flames.

No people or animals were injured, but the barn — along with hay and straw, vehicles and other equipment — was destroyed. Damage was estimated at nearly $200,000, according to Paradise Fire Chief Troy Fredrickson.

The Herald Journal reported that firefighting efforts were hindered by the lack of nearby fire hydrants, forcing crews to rely on tender trucks ferrying water from a hydrant half a mile distant.
