Officials responded to a fire at Elkins Dairy Farm in Smiths Grove at around 7:00 p.m. Friday night.

Alvaton, Smiths Grove and Gott Fire Departments all responded to the scene of a barn engulfed in flames at 2699 Hays Pondsville Rd.

Officials are not sure what caused the fire.

Several neighbors say they heard a noise that sounded like a large explosion a little before seven.

"We were in the hay field across the road and they are my neighbors and we just saw a lot of dark smoke and then a lot of explosions and we came out the back way and we came over and the barn was on fire. It is a pretty bad situation," said Chris Holman, a neighbor.

No one was injured in the fire.

The owner, Timmy Elkins, said he is happy no one was injured, but is very upset about the loss.
