ORLEANS TOWNSHIP — The Orleans Township Fire Department responded Tuesday afternoon to a rekindling of a fire that destroyed Orleans Township resident David Brown’s barn on Friday.

Fire Chief Leslie Doty said remaining hay bales caught fire once again after high winds rekindled the fire.

Firefighters used water to extinguish the fire and called in a bulldozer to help break up the remaining hay bales.
