According to Rochester fire, a call came in at 2 o'clock this morning about a barn engulfed at 770 75th Street NW.
When fire crews arrived, they were unable to get any fire apparatus near it because of the barn's location.
The crews had to extend 500 feet of hose to try and save the property but it was too far gone to put out.
No one was hurt, but the barn is a complete loss. Also lost were a tractor, baling equipment, 400 bales of hay, and horse saddles.
Crews attempted to save a lean-to from the barn so that the owner has somewhere to store his hay for the winter.
