Just a few hours before a fire consumed the large gable roof barn, dairy owner Chris Fesko flew over her property to take aerial photos. This is how the farm looked prior to the July 19 blaze.

A mere six hours before fire erupted on Thursday, July 19, at Fesko Dairy on East Lake Road in Spafford, owner Chris Fesko was high above the property taking aerial photos of the farm. No one was the wiser that by 3 p.m. a blaze would begin burning through the nearly 100-year-old farm’s main dairy complex, taking the lives of 40 yearling calves and three pigs.
