DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- Fire crews responded to Oakhill Road near Roseburg Wednesday night, finding a barn engulfed in flames.

Burn barrels left unattended a few feet away from the building are believed to have started the fire, Douglas County Fire District No. 2 officials said.

The Winchester crew was first on scene at 541 Oakhill Road at about 6:20 p.m., and the fire was brought under control shortly after additional crews arrived, officials said.

The barn was declared a total loss, and a vehicle parked near the building was also damaged.

Fire officials said when burning yard debris piles, they must be at least 50 feet away from any structure, a water source must be available and burn piles need to be attended.
