The barn was completely destroyed by the fire.
Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services responded to a fire call this evening at 7:11 at 121 Allmond Lane, off Birmingham Highway, in eastern Cherokee County.
 
A neighbor reported seeing smoke coming from the barn and thought the owner may have been burning some brush. However, he decided to jump in his ATV and investigate further. When he arrived at the barn, he saw flames coming from the structure and immediately called 911.
 
When firefighters arrived on the scene, they found heavy flames and smoke coming from the 1,000 square foot barn that was built in 2006. Fortunately, there were no animals inside the barn and the owner stated that he has not had any horses for a few years.
 
Firefighters were able to knock down the fire, but the structure was completely destroyed.
 
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
