The Mercer County Fire Protection District responded to a report of a barn fire south of Princeton on Jasmine Road Wednesday.

The fire protection district reports crews found a hangar-style shed with thick black smoke coming from the roof. A neighbor had closed the main doors to keep the fire from spreading to nearby plastic fuel cans.

Upon arrival, firefighters used an interior attack to extinguish the fire.

Spickard Fire Protection District provided mutual aid for Mercer County.
