How to Eliminate Fire Hazards from Your Pole Barn

Pole barns are used on many farms to house horses and livestock. They can also be used as garages to store vehicles, and even as houses and businesses. Any building that is constructed with wood or contains flammable materials can potentially catch fire. Follow these tips to eliminate fire hazards from your pole barn and protect the building and its contents.

You can reduce the risk of a fire by using fire-resistant materials to construct your pole barn. Concrete, metal, and brick are less likely than wood to catch fire, but those materials also have downsides. Concrete is not porous, brick costs more than wood, and metal is noisy and can be damaged by wind.

Even if your pole barn is built from fire-resistant materials, you should still take precautions to prevent a fire. There are several ways to reduce the risk of the building and its contents catching fire.

When a fire occurs in a pole barn, it usually starts with the contents, not the structure itself. If you are storing any flammable materials inside your pole barn, make sure they are properly sealed and kept away from space heaters, wood stoves, vents, and other sources of heat.

Keep any electrical devices clean of dirt and dust that could catch fire. Do not use extension cords in your pole barn because they can create a fire hazard.

Do not leave cloths or rags lying around because they are flammable and can help a fire spread. Keep the pole barn as clean and uncluttered as possible.

If you use your pole barn to store cars, trucks, tractors, or other vehicles or equipment, those machines contain flammable materials such as oil and gasoline. Clean up any spills immediately. Make sure the pole barn is well ventilated to prevent the buildup of gasoline fumes, which can ignite.
