Initial estimates peg the damage at around $225,000 in a fire at a farm in Floradale, north of Elmira.
Emergency crews were called to the property on Sandy Hills Drive just after 4:30AM this morning.
Officials say a tractor fire had spread to an implement shed and calf barn, and was extinguished just after 7:00AM.
The farmer was able to remove 39 of 41 calves from the barn.
Investigators say the probable cause was a short in the tractor’s engine compartment that ignited the nearby structures.
No other injuries were reported.
