A large barn caught fire early Saturday morning. It is located near Crenshaw Road and Westwind Drive in north Ozark.

Several departments were called in to help get it under control.

Firefighters say the woman who called 911 reported there were explosions coming from inside the barn.

She then told crews the barn seemed to be unoccupied, but there was a house nearby. She says she was able to notify the homeowners, and get them out of their home safely. The fire never spread to the house though; firefighters were able to contain it to the barn.

Crews were able to control the blaze-- amid some major concerns of high winds spreading the fire into a nearby wooded area.
