Arson is suspected in a hoop barn fire that destroyed tens of thousands of dollars in hay bales and farm equipment Tuesday afternoon in Robinson.
According to Harrison County Deputy Sheriff Dean Hutchison, emergency dispatchers received a call reporting the barn fire between 1:30 and 2 p.m. from a witness who observed the rising smoke and flames while driving on Robinson Road.
The witness also reported seeing two unidentified people running from the area of the barn just before the fire became visible, Hutchison said.
