Byth Rd. between Hoover Line and Marnoch Line is now open.

That section of road was closed this morning after reports of a barn fire. Firefighters from North Huron, Central Huron and Goderich were called out to the fire 2 km east of Auburn.

Officials say there was equipment in the barn but no animals. No one was there at the time of the blaze and a passerby alerted emergency crews about the fire.

The cause is under investigation but police say it does not seem to be suspicious.

There is no estimated cost of the damage at this time.
