No one was injured.

“The building fully involved once (firefighters were) on scene with extension to two smaller outbuildings,” Cook wrote in an online reply to the newspaper. “No one was in the barn/woodshop at the time of the fire. House and the large barn had no damage.”
He did not have the property owner’s name.
