BRADLEY (WVVA) -- A late night house fire, Saturday, destroys an outside structure.  A barn caught on fire around 10 p.m. at the Morgan Hill subdivision off Dry Hill Rd. 

Due to the nature of the call, fire crews could not get an engine to help put out the fire.  They had to use ATVs and manpower. 

Crews have determined there were no utilities connected to the barn, and it has been declared an arson. 

While on scene, several members of the fire crew heard people in the woods.  They contacted the Raleigh County Sheriff's Department to perform a K-9 search, but deputies were unable to find anyone around the fire. 

The Bradley Volunteer Fire Department along with the State Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the fire.
