Fire destroys barn at Olive Township home

OLIVE TOWNSHIP, MICH. - The homeowner was injured and a barn destroyed in a fire that started shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday in the 11000 block of Taylor Street in Olive Township.

Several departments, including Robinson and Blendon, responded to assist Olive Township firefighters, according to the Grand Haven Tribune.

Mark Huyser said that his son-in-law, Tim Dehaan, suffered burns on his arms and legs in the fire, but that he was going to be OK.

Huyser said that Dehaan was inside the large pole barn working on an 18-foot ski boat when the fire started.

Dehaan tried to get the burning boat out of the barn, but the fire got out of control too quickly, Huyser said.

No further information was available at the time on exactly how the fire started, or what was inside the barn.
