Fire this morning destroys a barn converted into living space on Broadway Road in Bethany.
Flames ripped through the barn owned by Brendan Carney.
He says he recently converted part of the barn into a recreation room for his family:
 
"We had it all redone as a recreational room. We spent the Holidays in there. I had dry walled and insulated, new cabinets and countertops. It was nice."
 
The first alarm game in around 3:30 this morning.
Bethany Second Assistant Chief John Szymkowiak as first on the scene:
 
"When we arrived the barn was fully engulfed. Nothing but the outer structure was left. We ran into a lack of water as susual out here in the country."
 
There were no injuries.
A passing truck driver alerted the family to the fire in their barn.
