Stonington — A Friday night fire that destroyed a barn at 213 Farmholme Road appears to be suspicious in nature, according to the fire marshal.

Fire Marshal Kevin Burns said the cause of the fire remains under investigation and police are investigating.

The fire was reported at 11:05 p.m. Burns said the 20-by-20 barn was a total loss. He said there were tools and a lawn tractor inside the structure.

The Wequetequock Fire Department responded to the fire.

Burns also said that a fire at 31 S. Broad St. also remains under investigation, but it appears the fire, which started in a rear bedroom,was caused by an electrical failure.

Five tenants were displaced as a result of the fire. The Pawcatuck Fire Department responded to the fire.
