Several East County fire departments battled a Harborcreek Township barn fire Sunday.
Firefighters were called to the barn, located in the 7900 block of Belle Rd, around 5:15 p.m. Upon arrival, the barn was already engulfed in flames.
Harborcreek Fire Chief Charles Ramsey said a nearby trash fire is to blame.
“Looks like the cause to the fire was a brush fire, an outside fire that was exterior to the barn itself,” he said. “A rubbish pile was burning.”
Five fire companies responded to the scene, but the barn was reduced to rubble.
