Posted: Updated:

The following news release is from the Jones County Fire Council:

The owner of a large chicken house in the Rustin community of Jones County lost his "best producing" chicken house to fire early Sunday morning, February 2.

At 5:18 a.m. fire units from Rustin and Sandersville Volunteer Fire Departments responded to 173 Jessie Byrd Road to the chicken house owned by Stanley Bolivar.  Upon arrival firefighters found the large chicken house fully involved in flames and collapsing.   Firefighters were able to keep the fire contained within the structure and away from propane tanks and diesel pumps around the perimeter of the house.

Bolivar said his wife woke him up after receiving a phone call informing them that their chicken house was on fire.  He said the whole house was on fire when he got to it.

The cause of fire is unknown and remains under investigation by Jones County Sheriff's Department Fire Investigator Sgt. Scott Gable.
