Several fire departments were working to put out the flames.

There were 2 dogs and one rabbit in the barn at the time of the fire.

News 10 was told that the dogs got out but the rabbit did perish.

There were also two campers parked next to the barn when the fire erupted and News 10 is being told that those campers are a total loss.

The fire chief told us the cause of the fire is under investigation, however, it may have been started with a heat lamp in the barn.
