Barn fire spreads, scorches farm fields


PLYMOUTH COUNTY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Winds help spread a barn fire about a mile into a nearby field, Friday afternoon, in Plymouth County, Iowa.

The Kingsley fire chief says a barn near 300th and Omega Avenue, somehow caught on fire around 3:30.

It's unclear whether the fire started in, or near, the barn.

That fire then spread a mile to the northeast, scorching farm fields along the way.

Firefighters tried to stop the fire from spreading further, before putting out the empty barn, which is a total loss.
