EFFINGHAM COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - Video captured flames roaring through a barn in Marlow on Highway 17 near Courthouse Road.

According to the Effingham Emergency Management Agency, the barn is a total loss.

Authorities believe the fire was started by a spark or slag from welding.

Luckily, the fire did not spread to any other structures and no livestock or people were injured. Sadly, family members tell us the barn was not insured. They say it used to be part of their dairy operation and had been in their family for generations.

They didn’t say whether or not they were planning to rebuild at this time.
