Medford fire crews made short work of a fire that destroyed an old barn near Springbrook and McAndrews roads in east Medford late Sunday afternoon.

A column of smoke filled the air and flames were shooting from the fully-engulfed structure as crews arrived on the scene in the 2400 block of McAndrews Road at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, said Erin Sawall, acting battalion chief for Medford Fire-Rescue.

Four engines and 16 firefighters took just four minutes to arrive on scene, and about six minutes to douse the flames on the aged tin-roofed barn, Sawall said.

There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire remains unknown at this time, Sawall said.

A fire investigator is at the site.

There also was a report of a second fire involving a power pole behind a substation at Stevens and Meridian roads near Eagle Point, however, no other information was immediately available.
