Settlement Reached in Nebraska Barn Fire Lawsuit

February 7, 2014

The parties involved have settled a lawsuit filed after a southeast Nebraska barn was destroyed by a controlled burn that got out of control.

Terms of the Gage County lawsuit settlement have not been disclosed.

Court documents say the Barneston Rural Fire Department held a controlled burn on April 2, 2011, on property owned by Frank Borowiak. His property was adjacent to land owned by plaintiffs Vince and Charoyl Koenig near the village of Virginia.

The documents say the fire got out of control and a barn, several other outbuildings, fences and trees were burned.

The Koenigs had been seeking $40,000 in damages from the village, the fire department and Borowiak.
