NORTH LIBERTY, Ind. -- Fire crews battled a blaze Saturday evening at a St. Joseph County barn.

It happened in the 29000 block of New Road.

Officials tell NewsCenter16 there were several animals inside the 8' x 12' barn.

The homeowner was reportedly burning leaves and thought the pile had been extinguished when a corner of the barn caught fire.

The barn was fully engulfed when fire crews arrived on the scene.

A few pigeons were hurt in the fire.
