Shenandoah County Fire & Rescue

TIMBERVILLE, Va. (WHSV)-- The fire happened in Shenandoah County on Brannertown Lane. No animals were in the building, according to fire crews.

The family says fire departments responded quickly and managed to protect nearby buildings. Earlier today, smoke was still coming from what's left of the barn.

The family who owns the land next to the barn says a tractor is destroyed as a result of the fire.

The fire marshal was on scene conducting an investigation, but there is no word yet on the cost of damages, or the cause.

The family is worried it is arson because there is a court battle going on for the land.
