LUXEMBURG TOWNSHIP - Five calves died in a barn fire early this (Friday) morning.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Department says the call came in at about 4:45 a.m. in Luxemburg Township, about four-and-a-half miles northwest of Kimball.

The fire possibly started from a heating lamp used to keep a calf warm.

The barn owned by Ronald Molitor of Watkins was severely damaged.
