Fire crews are still trying to put out a fire that has destroyed a barn in Rockingham County.
Crews say the fire started around 8 PM Monday on Lacey Springs Road.
They say the building used to be a poultry house, but now it housed more than 260 cattle.
Crews were able to get all the cattle out of the barn as the fire started. They say farm equipment and offices were also in the building that caught on flames.
Rockingham County Fire crews say the barn used to be the biggest poultry house in the state, measuring to about 70 feet by 900 feet.
Fire crews say it was difficult to get water to the fire because the nearest hydrant was out of service, so they had to shuttle water from Broadway, a few miles away.
Rockingham County Fire and Rescue responded as well as crews from Broadway, Singers Glen and Timberville.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
