A hay barn in West Warren burned to the ground Friday afternoon.
Weber County dispatchers got a call about 4 p.m. Friday that a barn in the backyard of a house at 6207 W. 1950 North was on fire.
Fire crews from three Weber Fire District stations responded to the call, but firefighters could not save the barn. It and the hay burned quickly, said Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther.
The barn collapsed on top of the haystacks, and firefighters could only let the hay burn itself out under the building's remains and make sure it did not spread, Lowther said.
The residents were home at the time, but Lowther was not sure if they were the ones who called in the fire. No people or animals were injured, he said.
Lowther estimated the cost of replacing the barn at $10,000, having just finished building one himself.
A Weber County sheriff's officer blocked westbound traffic at 2050 North and 5900 West as firefighters worked on the fire.
Weber Fire Marshal Ted Black said Friday night he was told the fire may have been caused when a ditch burn got out of control.
