Smoke floated over Highway 411 early Monday as a barn suffered more than $30,000 in damage.

Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Derrick Graves said the barn caught fire sometime around 1 a.m. and was all but destroyed. The owner of the barn, Jackie Holcomb, said there were 250 bales of hay in the barn, worth around $7,500, and the barn itself had a value of $30,000. 

Holcomb told Graves the barn had power running to it but nothing had been left on. 

The Vonore Fire Department and Hopewell and Tri-Community volunteer fire departments responded to the blaze.
