According to Otsego County Fire Wire, a barn fire Wednesday off Route 80 in Pittsfield resulted in several fire companies being called in to get the blaze under control. Authorities say the barn was not occupied by any animals and only being used for storage. It took several hours for crews to put the fire out and Route 80 was closed in both directions from County Route 17 to Camp Road. The barn was described as a total loss. No injuries were reported and the fire’s cause remains under investigation
