Fire destroys barn near Robesonia

VIDEO: Huge barn fire in Robesonia

HEIDELBERG TWP., Pa. - Firefighters from two counties battled a barn fire near Robesonia Friday night.

Intense flames engulfed the barn on Quarry Road in Heidelberg Township around 8 p.m.

The owner of the barn was using a skid loader to load hay, and officials said they think a spark or the hot exhaust ignited a hay bail, causing the fire.

The barn was filled with hay, which caused the fire to spread quickly, firefighters said. Water had to be brought to the scene in tanker trucks.

Fire crews from Berks and Lebanon counties were on scene until about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

No one was injured.
