The first calls came in around 6:45 Sunday morning. Fire District 5 says neighbors called 911 when they saw smoke. When crews arrived on scene the 150×150 ft. barn was burning heavily. They called Ashland Fire-Rescue engines in. Fire District 5 says about 3,000 pounds of hemp was burned and the barn is completely destroyed.
