CLAYTON — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a suspicious fire in an abandoned barn Tuesday night at 37716 Sylvester Road.

The barn sustained only minor damage and the fire was extinguished in just a few minutes, said Joseph D. Plummer, Jefferson County director of fire and emergency management.

The fire is considered suspicious because the barn had no power connected to it, Mr. Plummer said.

A passing motorist discovered the fire about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday and called 911. The owner of the longtime abandoned property has not been determined.
