Lapp farm suffers setback

| February 20, 2015

COSHOCTON – The state fire marshal was called to Coshocton Friday, Feb. 20 to investigate a fire at David Lapp’s farm on U.S. 36.

The fire occurred around 12:30 a.m. and was in the farm’s shop.

“I heard the dogs barking, got up and saw it,” Lapp said. “We had three tractors in there that we were working on, a service truck, pickup truck and all our tools.”

They grow corn, soybeans and wheat on their 2,500 acres and have six buildings on the farm.

“This is going to be a pretty big setback for us,” Lapp said. “We had things in there getting them ready for spring.”

As of Friday afternoon the cause of the fire was still undetermined.

“The firefighters did a great job,” Lapp said. “I’m tickled to death with them and thank them all for coming.”
