SHAWANO COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A barn in Shawano County is destroyed by a fire Wednesday morning.

Fire crews were called to the Hohensee farm on County Road G in the Town of Herman around 6 a.m.

Gresham Area firefighters say the wind quickly spread the flames from the milking parlor, where it began, to the connecting barn.

"Upon arrival we found the building fully involved, talking to the property owners, they said when they first came out to start morning chores the fire was small but I think the wind really fuel fan the flames and it just went from there," Gresham Fire Chief Sam Boucher told FOX 11.

Cattle were inside the barn when the fire started. Firefighters believe one or two cows died, though an exact number was not known. The rest of the cattle got out of the barn.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No word yet on damage costs.
