MABAS box 12 to the 2nd alarm.

Reports of a structure fire near 12158 Old River rd near Rockton.

Several fire departments are en route to assist.

Cristi Meyers-Arnold It’s fully engulfed. We think it’s a barn. This is from my home about 0.5 mile away. There are multiple fire trucks there- blocking Old River Rd. May want to avoid the area and find an alternative way to get home. They aren’t leaving any time soon.
