Multiple crews were called to a structure fire in Crawford County tonight.
The calls went out shortly after seven-thirty tonight that a barn was one fire at 4209 Wheeler Road in Crawford County.

When crews arrived on scene they found a large barn on fire.
Nearly a dozen crews from Pennsylvania and Ohio battled the fire that officials at the scene believe may have been started by a lightning strike from an earlier storm.

Luckily no one was injured and reports indicate that no animals were in the barn as well.
The fire spread quickly due to a large amount of hay being stored in the barn.
