LA GRANGE, WI (WTAQ) - Walworth County fire officials say they’re trying to determine what caused a four alarm fire that destroyed a barn at an egg farm on Friday.

Firefighters responded to the blaze at S & R Egg Farm in La Grange, just before 8:00 p.m.

Investigators say firewalls helped protect the fire from spreading to other buildings.

While a damage estimate has not been released, reports indicate an estimated 300,000 chickens were housed in the barn.

Founded in 1958, the family-owned business produces and distributes about two million eggs a year.
