Hastings Fire Department responded to a building fire call in the 13400 block of 90th Street Feb. 19 around 2:50 a.m. Upon arrival, firefighters found a barn fully involved in flames. Firefighters worked to protect the other out buildings.

The large barn was completely destroyed and there was damage to a smaller out building. In addition, there were two vehicle fires. The origin of the fire appeared to come from the large barn building, but a cause is yet to be determined.

There was an estimated $250,000 in losses.

The Cottage Grove Fire Department also assisted with the call.
