MONROEVILLE, Ind. (WANE) – Several fire departments responded to a barn fire on Monroeville Road in Allen County Sunday night.

The call came out at 7:20 p.m. Initially, crews thought two barns were burning at 18136 Monroeville Road, but it was later determined it was just one big barn. Officials said the wooden barn was 40 feet by 70 feet and was located behind a house.

The homeowner was home at the time and called 911 after seeing the fire. Crews had to use a 1,400-foot hose to get water out to the barn. No one was hurt but a couple of cars did have minor damage. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
