Barn fire kills 37,000 chickens
A two-alarm blaze at an Elizabeth Township chicken farm killed 37,000 birds Tuesday. The fire was at a two-story chicken house owned by Nathan H. and Veronica L. Myer at 125 Blantz Road. A fire official reportedly said the cause was an electrical malfunction, adding that the building appears to be a total loss. The farm is located near the drained Speedwell Forge Lake and is south of Route 322.
