Fire flames (properly sized)

CHRISTIANA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Authorities in southern Wisconsin said an electrical problem might have caused a fire in a pole shed that killed 52 chickens. The blaze started early yesterday morning on a farm in the Dane County town of Christiana.

The Cambridge and Deerfield fire departments responded. A 20-by-30-foot shed containing the chickens was engulfed in flames when units arrived. The sheriff's department says the blaze does not appear to be suspicious. The shed was a total loss. Damage was estimated at $25,000.
