(BURNEY) - Five fire departments battled a large fire on a farm about five miles west of Greensburg, in Decatur County.

Burney-Clay Township Volunteer Fire Department was joined at the scene by equipment and firefighters from nearby departments of Adams, Greensburg, Hartsville and Letts Community. Crews were first dispatched to the fire about 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to local authorities.

Barbara Smiley, the owner of Smiley Farm Inc., operates the corn and hog farm with her two sons. The farm has operated for 65 years.

Smiley said it was the worst day on the farm since a medical helicopter crashed there on Aug. 31, 2008, and all three crew members aboard were killed.
