ROBESON TWP., Pa. -

A family that lost its barn to a fire may never get the answers it's looking for.

The extensive damage done to the barn in the 500 block of Golf Course Road in Robeson Twp. Berks Co., prevents investigators from determining what sparked the fire Friday night, Ken Templin, the Birdsboro fire marshal, said Monday.

Firefighters from eight companies worked more than three hours to put out the fire. No one was hurt.

The more than 100-year-old barn was used to store hay and farming equipment, officials said.
