Fire crews responded to a fire at a farm that started around 4:15 pm in Henderson County.

A diesel tank is next to the farm, and crews are spraying water on it to keep the temperature down. There is hay and feed in the barn that is currently being removed.

The cause of the fire is unknown, but crews appear to be letting it burn out. The dairy has people working around the clock to look after the fire.

No livestock or people have been injured.

Chandler, Coffee City, and Larue-New York Fire Departments were on the scene.
