FRANKLIN CO. -- A pole barn was completely destroyed after a fire in rural Franklin County on Saturday.

The fire began just before 3 p.m. on Eakin Grove Road near West City.

Homeowners said they believe the fire started after a battery on a charger shorted out.

They said they heard several explosions from kerosine and propane tanks inside the barn.

No one was hurt, but the family believes they lost nearly $200,000 dollars worth of possessions.
