A north Shawnee Co. fire destroyed a barn and killed several baby chickens, authorities say.

Flames engulfed about half of the barn, in the 4300 block of NW Green Hills Road, by the time Soldier Township firefighters arrived early Monday afternoon, according to Lt. Rachel Frehe.

She said most of the animals got out on their own, however some baby chickens did perish.

Investigators have not determined what started the blaze.
