WASHINGTON, IN (WFIE) - A turkey barn fire is under investigation in Daviess County, Indiana.

The Washington Township Fire Department says they were called out early Wednesday morning to the barn that’s south of Washington.

They say the barn was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.

No people were hurt. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
