The old Pines barn on Kinsey Road burst into flames. Crews were still battling the blaze Monday evening. But the barn is a total loss.

Nearly 50 firefighters from four departments were called to the scene.

Fortunately, no people or animals were hurt.

The barn was used to auction farm animals and equipment in recent years.

An investigator was called in to determine what sparked the fire.
