UPDATE: Fire destroys 2 barns near Harmony

Posted: Updated:

NEAR HARMONY, Minn. (KTTC) -- Fire has destroyed two barns near Harmony.

It happened at County Highway 5 and County Road 44 at about 10 a.m. Thursday.

According to the Fillmore County Sheriff's Office, the Harmony and Chester fire departments arrived to find one barn on fire.

Linus Hyl lives nearby and says he saw the fire in a larger barn spread to a second barn.

"I have to have all of my sympathy with these people not knowing what else was in those barns and the fact that they were not here at the time of the fire," Hyl said.

The two barns burned to the ground.

The fire did not spread to the family's house.
