ST. MARTIN, Minn. (KNSI) The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says a barn near St. Martin was destroyed by fire last night.

The fire call at the Wilfred and Kathleen Schmitt residence was called in just after 9 pm. 

The barn was filled with antiques, wood, iron and old woodworking machines. 

The barn was uninsured, and is a total loss. It appears an electrical heater caused the fire.

There were no reports of injuries. Paynesville amblance was on standby for mutual aid.
