IBerkshires.com reports an early morning fire at Ziemba's farm on Walling Road destroyed a hay-filled barn complex, I berkshires.com reports firefighters from nearly a dozen fire departments spent hours containing the blaze and preventing it from spreading to adjacent buildings and the farmhouse at Broadlawn Farm.

Tankers were filling up at water source at the bottom of Walling and East Mountain roads and a hydrant on East Road. Two portable tanks, or pools, were set up in the farm's driveway and tankers backed up to fill them and then left to replenish. That had been going on for hours and was expected to continue for some time.

Fire Chief John Pansecchi believed all or most of the dairy cattle were saved. In addition to the Adams Fire Department and Forest Wardens, tankers and equipment also came from Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, Windsor, and Savoy, and Stamford, Vt

Around 10 a.m. this Monday morning, we heard over the scanner in the newsroom that there were still some hot spots that Firefighters had to deal with.
