Overnight Barn Fire in Colerain Township
COLERAIN TOWNSHIP (WKRC) -- An historic barn is destroyed in an overnight fire, and investigators suspect spontaneous combustion may be to blame.
Colerain Township firefighters were on their way back to their station from another call at about four o'clock this morning.
That's when they say they spotted the glow of a large fire in the area of Thompson Road and Forfeit Run.
When they arrived, the barn was engulfed in flames.
Several hundred hay bales were inside.
Freshly cut hay is known to spontaneously combust -- it's called "hot hay".
