BIRCH RUN TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Fire crews have extinguished a blaze at a barn, located at 8125 Gera Road in Birch Run Township.

The area is just south of Frankenmuth. The blaze broke out just after 10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

For nearly four hours, Gera Road was closed between East Townline and Evergreen roads to help the crews efficiently fight the fire. That roadway reopened around 1:45 p.m.

Not much is known about the fire, but photos and video from the scene show substantial destruction to the barn. Crews were able to douse the flames just before noon.

WNEM will continue to follow this story and will provide updates as new information becomes available.
