Firefighters from 10 departments responded to a fire at a large historic barn on Bolton Center Road in Bolton on Wednesday night and investigators are trying to determine what caused it.
Around 10 p.m., fire broke out at the Bolton Heritage Barn, a historic barn the town owns and was in the process of renovating so the public can use it.
Crews from Bolton, Andover, Columbia, Glastonbury, Hebron, Manchester, Marlborough, North Coventry, Tolland and Vernon were called to 266 Bolton Center Road just after 10 p.m.
As firefighters battled the flames, they made it a priority to ensure the flames did not spread to any homes nearby. It took around 40 minutes to get the fire under control and it did not spread.
No animals were inside the barn and no one was hurt, officials said.
State troopers now guard the driveway as investigators determine what happened.
