VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Fire crews are battled a barn fire in the 3600 block of West Neck Road Thursday evening, according to Amy Valdez with the Virginia Beach Fire Department.

Valdez said fire units were initially in a defensive mode, fighting heavy fire from outside the structure, and crews had to shuttle water to the scene because there was no hydrant nearby.

No injuries were been reported and all animals outside the barn in a pasture at the time of the fire. Valdez said the fire did not seem to be endangering any other structures.
