Crews battle barn fire in Cass County
A Howard Township family lost their barn in a large fire Monday afternoon.
According to the Howard Twp. Fire chief, some family members were working on a dump truck inside the barn -- cutting bolts -- when sparks led to the blaze.
Nobody was injured in the fire, but the barn is a total loss.
Several fire crews responded to the scene, spraying water and foam on the structure for more than two hours.
The fire left a section of M 60 between Hoyt Drive and Anderson Road closed for part of the afternoon.
As of 6:30 p.m., crews had put out the flames and were working on tearing down what was left of the structure.
