The passerby reported that flames could be seen coming through the roof of a house on Milton-Carlisle Road in Bethel Twp.

From a distance, it appeared the fire was coming from a house. But in reality, the flames were from the vacant barn some distance behind the home.

The fire was dispatched about 5:30 p.m. to the 8900 block of Milton-Carlisle Road in Bethel Twp. in Clark County.
