MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) -- A barn fire in southwest Idaho destroyed the barn, a motorhome parked inside and hay but animals managed to escape.

KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/10e0uVC) the fire on Saturday in Meridian drew firefighters from five agencies.

Star Fire Department Captain Dave Sparks says the biggest problem firefighters faced was a lack of water supply in the rural area.

He says firefighters had to wait for water tenders to get to the scene.

It's not clear what started the fire and a damage estimate wasn't available.
