“Never a dull moment here on the farm… we had a Fire in the Chicken barn !! A For real scary story ..… Yesterday we dodged a bullet with our 110 year old sweet building,” Matt wrote on Instagram, revealing that the barn was left mostly unharmed after the fire.

“Thanks to my buddy Ty … who every year pushes me to have as many up to date fire extinguishers on @rolofffarms as we can fit in all the barns and structures …AND. The quick reactions of our farm hand Jason .. we saved the barn,” Matt continued. “Called 911 around 10 am yesterday with smoke pouring and I mean pouring out the sides.. the chickens had already gone out for the day a few hours earlier…. I had gotten home to the farm late the night before from AZ.. it’s was 3:45 am before I crawled into bed… then …few hours of sleep later. I hear the commotion in the chicken barn outside my window… flames are 6 ft high and spread along one of the interior walls….”

Matt then went on to explain how the fire occurred, before reassuring fans that all of his chickens are safe.

“Between all the hands on the farm and the quick response of our local fire department the barn is saved.. only some interior damage,” Matt wrote. “Fire was caused by a light falling to the floor. Likely happened when all the chickens rush to get out their automatic door in the morning … No chickens were injured in the event.”

We’re glad to hear the fire didn’t harm anyone.
