TOWN OF SPRINGFIELD, Wis. -

Firefighters battled a blaze in a barn north of Middleton that might have started because of wet hay, according to the Dane County Sheriff's Office.

The owner of the farm discovered the fire. No people or animals were hurt because of the fire. The barn is considered a total loss.

Riles Road west of U.S. Highway 12 was closed during the fire.
