A barn fire in rural a section of western Modesto is expected to burn all day Friday with 80 tons of hay as the fuel.

The Burbank Paradise Fire District was called out at around 4 AM for the fire on the back of the property of a home on Vernon Avenue.

The fire department quickly realized there was nothing they could do to stop the flames burning the hay, so they set up a perimeter around the barn to make sure other structures and livestock were O.K.

Parts of Vernon Avenue were shut down for a while so the fire department could utilize the fire hydrant needing to lay out the hose about 1,000 feet to get to the fire.
