“Lafayette firefighter’s quick response to the structure fire at the Macon County Live Stock Market early Monday morning, March 31, prevented a potential disaster,” said Fire Chief Keith Scruggs. “We were able to get on it real quick and contain the fire to the fairly new pole barn, before it could get to the main building at the stock yard, on Scottsville Road, inside the city limits. The barn was filled with hay.”
