Early morning fire destroys barn, damages house in town of Westfield...

Chautauqua County fire investigators are looking for the cause of a fire that destroyed a barn and damaged a nearby house in the town of Westfield Tuesday morning.  Firefighters from Westfield and four other departments battled the blaze at 7721 Martin Wright Road.  Battalion Chief Rick Cole says crews got the call around 4:45 a.m. this morning.  Cole says the house was about 25 feet from the barn, and by the time they got set up operations, the house and barn were both burning.  He says the barn was pretty much gone at that point.  Cole adds the area was hard to reach from the road.  Cole says he arrived about 20-minutes after the initial call... and, the barn was already "on the ground" when he arrived.  He says the homeowner may have suffered some minor facial burns... but, the two occupants of the house were able to escape to safety because of smoke detectors.  The fire also damaged some nearby trees.  Westfield had help from Brocton, Portland, Ripley and Mayville fire crews.
