(HURON) – Huron and Marion Township Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a barn fire Tuesday night. Firefighters were dispatched to the 2000 block of Blanton Road around 10:26 p.m.
Upon arrival firefighters found the barn engulfed in flames.
“When I arrived the flames already had caught nearby treetops on fire. I believe the fire started in the top of the barn, but I’ve not had a chance to talk to the property owners or conduct a more thorough investigation to determine what caused the fire,” said Huron Fire Chief Bill Kinser.
Huron Fire Department responded with three fire trucks and a command vehicle. Marion Township brought two fire engines to the scene.
Firefighters continued to douse hot spots and make sure the blaze did not spread into nearby woods.
