Last working round barn in Vermont burns down

in Fire/Irasburg/News by

IRASBURG — The round barn at the Robillard Flats Dairy Farm, located on Route 58 in Irasburg, was destroyed by fire this afternoon.


The fire broke out at around 1:30 p.m.

There were no reported injuries, however, some animals are believed to have been lost in the fire.

The barn was the last working round barn in the state.

It was purchased by Guy and Helen Robillard in 1960 and has been operated by their son Bernard and his wife since.

Most round barns still standing in the state of Vermont have currently been put to other uses.

There’s no word yet on what caused this fire.
