The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District and a handful of other agencies responded to a barn fire Saturday.
Crews were dispatched about 12:30 p.m. to the 1600 block of Longview Drive north of Algonquin and west of Cary Road. When crews arrived at the scene about six minutes later, the barn was fully engulfed in flames, according to a news release from the district.
First responders had trouble getting to the area because of icy roads. More problems were caused by the lack of nearby fire hydrants in the rural area, according to the release.
The district signaled a box alarm for additional departments to help supply water, according to the release.
The fire was extinguished by about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. No one was injured, and a damage estimate has not yet been determined, according to the release.
The investigation is ongoing, and the fire's cause has not yet been determined.
Fire crews from Barrington Countryside, Crystal Lake, Cary, Huntley, Fox River Grove, Lake Zurich, Rutland-Dundee, Nunda Rural and Barrington units assisted, as well as the McHenry County Sheriff's Office, Algonquin Township and the Algonquin Public Works Department.
