ROSSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) - Rossville firefighters managed to save two outbuildings on a farm after a large fire broke out. A third building, where the fire started, was a total loss.

Multiple agencies were called to the scene on 450 West, about two miles north of Rossville Wednesday night. Investigators said two people were cutting and cleaning metal when a flying spark started the fire.

It quickly spread to the rest of the building, and parts of the buildings beside it. No one was hurt.

Although the buildings were described as hog barns, investigators said no animals had been kept there for several years.
