Electric system blamed for smoke at Kingston farm

KINGSTON – An electrical issue caused plenty of smoke but no flames Tuesday morning in a pig barn along Five Points Road, authorities said.

Genoa-Kingston firefighters and DeKalb County Sheriff's police were called about 6:30 a.m. to 29038 Five Points Road, which is between Base Line and Aldrich roads, Sheriff Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. They were unable to find flames in the barn containing about 280 hogs.

They determined the fire was not suspicious and finished work there about 8:30 a.m., Dumdie said.
