An Iowa man speculates that a raccoon that caught on fire destroyed his century barn Monday, KJAN radio reported.

Multiple fire crews were called to Doug Redinbaugh's Indian Creek Farms about 9:15 a.m.

Redinbaugh told KJAN that he thinks the fire started in the barn when a raccoon living in a pile of storm debris being burned ran into the barn.

KJAN said the barn and its contents were a total loss. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
