No injuries but the barn is a complete loss.

A barn on State Route 26 in Washington County is completely destroyed in a fire, damaging the side of a nearby garage and heat damage to the nearby home.

Reno Fire Chief Dan Richey says the wind was a big factor.

Richey says a fire fighter caught on fire while fighting the flames between the barn and the garage. He is okay.

Tonight, fire fighters continue to try and put out the fire.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time however fire fighters believe it to be electrical.

Cheif Richey says they are looking for a light source and will be working well into the night.

Richey says they called in so many departments because of the location being so far out in the country.

The Marietta, Reno, Fearing and Williamstown Fire Departments responded.
