The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office and the Elrosa Fire Department responded to a barn fire just before 1 a.m. Thursday morning.

Sheriff Don Gudmundson say deputies were called to the Wuertz Dairy Farm on County Road 14 near Melrose. The cattle barn was fully engulfed in flames when deputies arrived. Property owners Peter and Lisa Wuertz were able to open one gate to release several trapped cows.

The barn was determined to be a complete loss and an estimated 25 calves were killed in the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
