Fire Devastates Fairview Farms and the Brison Family
Firefighters from 12 different departments fought to contain a barn fire in New Bloomfield, Missouri on Monday afternoon. It happened at Fairview Farms, a horse breeding and boarding business off County Road 367, owned by Tonya and Bob Brison.
Three buildings were a total loss, including two barns, but crews managed to save the rest of the property. More than 50 horses were there when the fire started.
Fairview Farms announced on its Facebook page Monday evening that seven horses and three dogs perished in the fire. The fire also destroyed the farm's training barn, colt barn and arena.
The cause remains undetermined as of Monday night. The state fire marshal was also called to investigate.
The community has started a GoFundMe account to help the Brison family.
