Fire officials say no injuries were reported after a barn was destroyed when it became fully engulfed in flames early Monday morning near Woodstock.
The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded around 5:18 a.m. Monday to the 1000 block of South Rose Farm Road in unincorporated Woodstock for a report of a structure fire.
Woodstock Fire/Rescue District Communication Specialist Alex Vucha said a motorist driving by called 911 after noticing a barn on fire.
Firefighters arrived within five minutes and confirmed a 25-foot by 55-foot barn was fully engulfed.
Firefighters quickly established water supply operations at the roadway while simultaneously engaging in a defensive fire attack, Vucha said.
The area does not have fire hydrants and firefighters had to shuttle in water.
The fire was declared under control within 30 minutes.
Overhaul and hot spot mitigation continued for an additional two hours, Vucha said.
No injuries were reported and no animals were believed to be living in the barn.
The barn and contents were determined to be a complete loss with preliminary damage estimates of $50,000.
The fire is not believed to be suspicious in nature but it remains under investigation by the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District.
