Barn holding chicken waste catches fire at NC State farm

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A barn on a research farm at North Carolina State University has burned.

Fire officials tell WNCN-TV ( ) that a three-sided building holding chicken waste caught fire early Monday morning at the school’s Lake Wheeler Road farm.
