ORANGE CITY (AP) -

Authorities say a barn in northern Iowa was destroyed by a fire on Christmas.

The Sioux County Sheriff's Office says fire officials responded to the barn near rural Orange City around 3 p.m. Wednesday.

They saw heavy smoke coming from the structure, and it quickly became engulfed in flames.

No injuries were reported, but the barn and its contents are considered a total loss.

Authorities say they believe a heat lamp inside the barn caused the fire.
