Fire Destroys Millbury’s Ice Cream Barn

5 10 2009

There aren’t many things quite so devastating as fire. In a world of ice cream heat is always a nemesis, but on Friday evening, the Ice Cream Barn in Millbury burnt down. Fire officials at the scene saw no suspicious signs in how the fire was started.


The shoppe had been in operation for the past 31 years. On Friday, owner Ray Lemieux left work as usual around 6p, but fire crews arrived at 7:12p to find the building at 56 Canal St in Millbury already ablaze. Unfortunately, this is a destination that we hadn’t yet made it to, and now it enters the realm of mythical scoops.

wow, it’s been awhile, but I’ve driven through there a few times in my life and it didn’t even dawn on me that was an ice cream place right there, how did i miss that? Maybe I was too focused on getting to “Swirls & Scoops” which is about 5 minutes away in neighboring Grafton.

it’s always a shame when we lose an ice cream place.
