Fire damaged a horse barn in rural Parsons Sunday night.

Fire District No. 9 firefighters were called at 7:16 p.m. Sunday to the fire in rural Parsons. Osage Township firefighters also responded to the Scott Gofourth home.

District No. 9 Fire Chief Rob Gartner said a 20-by 50-foot horse barn was covered in flames when firefighters arrived.

No horses were in the barn, but about 300 bales of hay were destroyed, Gartner said.

About a dozen firefighters responded initially and District No. 9 firefighters remained on scene until about midnight Sunday to put out hot spots, Gartner said.

The fire cause is undetermined, though Gartner said it didn’t appear to be suspicious.

A damage estimate was not available.

No injuries were reported.
