LAURENS COUNTY, Ga. -- Lightning is believed to have caused a barn fire at one Laurens County home.

Resident John Ashley said that his father built the structure in the 1960's.

There were only personal belongings in the barn and no one, including any animals, was hurt.

Ashley said one of his neighbors let them know the barn was on fire. He said that embers are still burning but they're keeping a close watch on them a flair up isn't expected.
