Glass said McCammon may have lost $55,000 worth of equipment, maybe even more counting the tools that were destroyed.
"He suspects that some juveniles that were in the area four-wheeling may have been involved, but at this time that's only an idea," Glass said.
Glass said he has since met with Detective Patrick Alford, an arson investigator with the Kentucky State Police.
"We feel it was definitely caused intentionally," Glass said. "There's no electricity or power source near the area, and there was no storm or lightning."
Fuel containers found
Glass said he and Alford also found fuel containers that appeared to have been used to start the fire. The owner had a 50-gallon drum of diesel fuel on the property that was used to fuel the tractor.
"We could see a pattern where they poured the fuel out, leading from the tractor to the barn," Glass said. "We pretty much feel like this was criminal mischief, although I don't know why anyone would want to do that."
Glass said he and Alford will continue working any leads that are received in Lincoln County or through Kentucky State Police. The suspects involved could be charged with arson and wanton endangerment, Glass said.
"Anytime you light a fire intentionally, you're putting a firefighter's life in danger," Glass said.
Glass said five Lincoln County fire stations responded to the fire.
On Monday, Glass said a second fire destroyed a home at 1925 South Fork Lake Road.
The homeowner, Randal Payton, returned to find two rooms of his single-story home engulfed in flames. The call came in at 6:36 p.m.
"He had no idea what caused it but said he had several firearms in the home. We only found two of them after the house was destroyed," Glass said. "I'm not sure of the number of guns, but I want to say he said he had around 15 different guns."
Glass said Detective Alford was called back in to help investigate the home blaze, as well.
"It kind of gave the impression that there was a home burglary, and the fire was caused afterwards intentionally," Glass said. "Then again, we've not investigated it completely, so it could've been electrical. We may find the guns somewhere."
Glass said although the home is still partly standing, it's destroyed.
Seven Lincoln County stations responded to the fire.
