A barn fire around 5 a.m. Monday at 270 Rock Island Road caused extensive damage and killed several dairy cows in rural Rock Falls, Capt. Nathan Hartman said.
Firefighters were called to the scene at 5:04 a.m. and found the barn, which measures about 100 feet by 60 feet, heavily involved. No one was injured, but about a dozen cows were killed and the barn is a total loss, Hartman said.
Firefighters were on scene until about noon Monday.
