Montgomery County Fire and Rescue responded to a barn fire this morning around 4:45am after a nearby resident saw a “glow in the sky” and called 9-11.

The fire occurred on Stoney Creek Road near Wetherfield Lane in Potomac and has left one horse dead, according to Chief Spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Pete Piringer. One horse that managed to escape the fire has survived.
