Flames consumed a Hollywood Heights barn early Thursday morning.

Firefighters were called at about 4:30 a.m. to the 1220 block of South Clinton Road after the owner of the barn reported being awoken by an explosion.

The barn was destroyed by the blaze. But firefighters from the Caseyville and French Village fire departments were able to keep the flames from spreading to the owner’s nearby home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. No one was injured by the fire.
