No one was injured in a structure fire this morning in Defiance County's Highland Township, the township fire department said.

Firefighters were called about 9:30 a.m. to a report of a structure fire at 15740 Hill Road, and found heavy smoke coming from a wood burner, the department said in a statement.

It said crews entered the structure, knocking down the fire, then removed the siding because of extension in an insulated wall.

Livestock were removed from a nearby barn as a precaution, the statement said. Crews were at the scene for two hours.
