The structure was two miles south and one half-mile west of Menno. The address where the fire took place was not immediately available.

Within an hour after firefighters arrived, the blaze was under control, Huber said. Still, the barn has been declared a total loss.

No people or animals were inside the barn when the fire started, Huber said.

The Scotland Fire Department assisted by supplying additional water to help fight the fire.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, according to Huber.
