EAGLE CREEK, OR (KPTV) -

Crews responded to a large barn fire in Eagle Creek early Friday morning.

Clackamas County fire officials said the 2-alarm fire started around 3:38 a.m. on Southeast Dowty Road.

Crews said the barn was fully involved in the fire and it is a total loss.

Initial reports indicated that there may have been a person inside the barn at the time of the blaze. Crews said that person was found outside and uninjured.

Firefighters said there were several small explosions from propane tanks on the scene.

Because the fire was located in a rural area, crews were forced to shuttle water to the scene with water tenders.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
