2 barns destroyed by fire near Long Grove

UPDATE: A fire destroyed two barns north of Long Grove, Iowa on Monday afternoon.

Strong winds caused the fire to spread from one barn to the other. It also threatened a home -- but firefighters were able to put out the flames in time.

Long Grove fire chief Joshua Roe said the materials inside and the structure of the barn made it more difficult to put out the blaze.

"A couple of steel buildings had a couple of automobiles in it and also some tile from a remodel style and also barns that are 100-plus years old and steel sided so a little bit of everything, a good fire source," Roe said.

The cause of the fire is still under investgation. No one was injured.
