ANTIOCH, TN (WSMV) -

Crews are working to prevent a barn fire from spreading to other homes on Mt. View Road in Antioch.

According to officials, a passerby saw the smoke and called authorities around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the fire.

The homeowner, who is a retired Metro firefighter, said there was a woodworking shop inside the barn.

"I saw a glow just under the shade. I took a step back and saw it was totally involved," said homeowner Tommy Potts.

Potts said the flames soared up to 10 to 15 feet in the air.

A car that was near the barn also went up in flames.

Firefighters had issues with the closest fire hydrant, so they had to shuttle water from a hydrant that was about half a mile away, which took up a lot of extra time and resources. They are now using foam on the flames to keep the fire from flaring up again.

Officials are still working to determine the cause of the blaze.
