DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Albany fire crews were called to a barn fire on a plantation property early Friday evening.

A barn nearby caught fire from the tractor, and soon became fully engulfed.

Firefighters worked to contain the blaze, but the flames consumed the entire building.

Smoke could be seen for miles from the fire.

No injuries were reported.
