The cause of a recent fire in Brown Township was ruled as undetermined, according to the Norwich Township Fire Department.

The fire, which took place April 15 at 1901 Jones Road, affected three barns, out buildings and a two-story residence.

The fire originated in the southeast corner of a barn built in the 1950s, according to a report issued by Fire Chief David Long. The barn was filled with hay, straw and two calves, which died in the blaze.

Winds spread the fire to a nearby home built in 1878, out buildings and ruptured two diesel fuel tanks containing 150 gallons of fuel.

"Investigators found no evidence of criminal intent," the April 22 report states. "The cause is most likely accidental based on their on-scene examination and interviews."

Norwich Township was part of the 8 eight departments who sent a total of 32 pieces of equipment and 62 firefighters to battle the blaze. Two firefighters sustained minor injuries.
