A barn fire in the 1800 block of Falls City Road was discovered at 5:30 a.m. on Thursday by the property owner who awoke to his barn fully involved in fire, said April Welsh, the spokeswoman for Dallas Fire & EMS. The fire was caused by electrical issues. The barn did not have any animals inside. It contained vehicles, storage and a semi-trailer. When 20 firefighters arrived, they took a defensive approach to protect the surrounding property, unable to go inside the barn for an interior attack, Welsh said.
