Morning fire destroys barn in northeast Allen County

Local News

Fire destroyed a barn on the northeast side of Allen County Monday morning. 

Emergency crews responded to a small farm in the 8900 block of Roberts Road around 2:30 a.m. That’s just southeast of State Road 37 between Harlan and Woodburn.

When firefighters arrived, they found a barn on the property engulfed in flames. Fire crews from multiple departments responded to help put it out.

It took crews about 45 minutes to get the fire under control. The barn was a total loss.

Fire officials said no humans were hurt in the fire, but it wasn’t clear if any livestock was inside the barn while it burned.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials said it might have started in a piece of farm equipment.
