A fast moving fire damaged a barn and the contents inside in Aloha on Thursday.

Calls about the fire came in around 11:43 a.m. from a neighbor who saw heavy black smoke and flames coming from the barn.

When crews arrived they began a 'defensive attack' the fire. Additional crews were called in to fight the fire including water tenders to shuttle water.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue said the fire was quickly knocked down and crews remained on-scene to watch for hot spots.

No injuries were reported. The owner was not home at the time of the fire.

TVF&R is investigating the cause of the fire and damage estimate.

Two vehicles and other farming equipment were damaged due to the fire. Crews were able to save two tractors, a combine, and a farm truck in a nearby structure from damage.
