Crews fight barn fire in rural Christian County

NIXA, Mo. Crews from six area departments teamed up to fight a fire in a barn Saturday afternoon.

The call went out just after 11 a.m. Saturday on State Route N, west of Nixa. It was a challenging fire, since propane tanks in the barn exploded as the flames moved through the building.

Rural departments from Christian and Greene Counties, Nixa, Hurley, Republic and Clever pitched in to fight the flames.

There are no reports of injuries, and no word on what started the fire.
