Everyone was able to get out of the barn and home by the time fire crews arrived at the scene. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters extinguished the house first and then turned their attention to the barn fire, saving the residence from more extensive damage. "Pictures are worth a thousand words. As you can see, there was no time to waste," Knutsen said on Facebook."If our response would have been delayed, the house would have also been destroyed.
