On March 7, 2021, around 3:15 p.m., Company 2 and surrounding counties were called to respond to 1865 Horsmon Farm Lane in St. Leonard, Md. for a working fire in the main barn.
On the Horsmon Farm Facebook page, owners said: “What a horrific day. Our largest barn burnt [sic] down today. Not sure on the cause but we were on the farm when it happened. I called it in as soon as we noticed smoke and by the time I got off the phone with the 911 dispatcher it was fully engulfed.”
The official cause of the fire has not been released, but farm mentioned, “All people and animals are safe. 4 tractors were lost, skid steer loader, hay equipment, countless tools, and so much more.”
Since the fire, there’s been a lot of community support and outreach to help replace the items destroyed during the incident.
“We appreciate our countless friends and family who stopped to help and provide support. We are so thankful to our volunteers at our local Fire Departments for saving the barn beside this one. Thank you to all of our Neighbors, Customers and Friends who have offered kind words and support as our farm starts healing. Hugs your loved ones because there were many what ifs,” the farm concludes.
