Fire Destroys Farm Buildings In Bullard

It happened just off Hwy. 2493 at the intersection of Tyler and Phillips St. in Bullard.  The owner of the property said three of the four buildings at the location were engulfed in flames when he arrived.   The buildings, located right across the street from the Bullard Fire Department, were mainly used for storage.  One of them was a historic cotton gin. 

The owner says there was no electricity in the building and believes someone may have deliberately started the fire.

"We're a pretty close-knit community, and everybody knows everybody, and if that's what happened, then somebody saw something," said Connie Vaughan, the owner of the property.
