1901 - Barns at the Angola Convict Farm Destroyed by Fire.

Baton Rouge, La., July 9. – One set of barns at Angola state farm, consisting of two buildings, was destroyed by fire at 9 p. m. Monday. The cause of the fire is now known. The property was insured for about half its value. The loss will probably reach $4,000. There was no loss of live stock, the fifty head of mules usually quartered there being probably out in the pasture, as the crops are well advanced.
