OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. – A barn fire Tuesday resulted in around $15,000 in damage.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said the 911 call came from a man working on a 1,000-foot communication tower who saw the fire.
The barn, which had not been used for many years, recently had a steel roof put on it and was located at 7255 Silver Creek Road NE.
Authorities said there is nothing suspicious about the fire and that they believe it was caused by an electrical issue.
