Fire destroyed a small out building and killed the chickens inside it on a Murrysville farm early Sunday morning, a Sardis fire department spokesman said.

The fire, which was reported at 5:46 a.m., occurred at a farm at 4320 Fairview Lane, said Sardis Deputy Fire Chief Joey Paiano. No one was injured in the fire at the building, Paiano said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Paiano said.

Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control within 10 minutes of arriving on the scene, Paiano said. They remained on the scene until about 8:15 a.m.

James F. Beacom Sr. and others are listed as the owners of the property, according to the Westmoreland County tax map.

Sardis firefighters were assisted by the other Murrysville departments and units from neighboring fire departments.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
