FIRTH â€” A barn burned to the ground Monday afternoon near Firth.
Firemen with the Shelley-Firth Fire Department were able to contain the fire at 537 E. 700 N.
"With the wind blowing, we were able to stop the fire from spreading to other structures that were nearby," said Firth Fire Chief Bruce Anthony.
The fire was contained to just the yard near Steve Holzclaw's home.
What burned was an open barn where cattle were fed.
"It was not used at the present time," Anthony said.
Two pumpers, one tanker and three brush fire trucks responded to the fire.
Anthony said they were "still looking into" the cause of the fire.
