GOODHUE — A barn was destroyed by fire early this morning in Belvedere Township, officials said.

The call of a fully engulfed structure fire came in at 12:43 a.m., sending Goodhue firefighters to 360th Street Way, rural Goodhue.

The barn, which held 10-day-old hay that had been put in late last week, was a total loss. No damage estimate was available.

Three large silos nearby were empty, the report says, but sustained fire damage.
