Multiple fire crews responded to a barn fire in the 300 block of Raubenstine Road in West Manehim Township.

The fire started shortly after 4:00 p.m. and police say after flames consumed a barn and large hay bales, the flames extended into a wooded area which was challenging for firefighters to knock down due to high winds today.

West Manheim township police investigated and determined the cause of the fire was caused by discarded wood stove ashes.
