Firefighters in Foristell had to use some ingenuity to put out a barn fire Tuesday afternoon.
The fire, which the Wentzville Fire Protection District said ended up burning about 30 or 40 acres, started this afternoon in an area of St. Charles and Warren Counties were there are no fire hydrants. In order to fight the fire, firefighters from Wentzville, Lake St Louis, Lincoln County, Wright City and O'Fallon, Mo., had to use water from a nearby pond.
A post on the Wentzville Fire Protection District said the fire was wind-fed, and limited water made it difficult to fight.
There were no injuries reported. An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
