gothenburg-fireA fire broke out at the Gothenburg Livestock sale barn on Monday afternoon.

The Gothenburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire at the barn at around 4:30 PM.

According to fire officials, it appears the building will be a total loss.  No injuries have been reported.

A witness told the Post that flames could be seen shooting out of the side of the building as well as the roof.  They also stated that a sale had been held by Gothenburg Livestock earlier this afternoon, but they did not believe anyone was in the building at the time the blaze broke out.

No information was available on the potential cause of the fire.
