TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) - A barn at a Tualatin farm that offers tours for children has been destroyed in a fire, leaving 15 chickens and a calf dead.

KPTV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1LPqAUb ) the fire was reported at Lee Farms early Tuesday.

Firefighters arrived to find the 24-by-42 foot barn fully engulfed by the blaze. They were able to extinguish the fire quickly and kept the flames from spreading.

The family-owned farm has hosted school tours, birthday parties and other events.

Investigators say the fire, which caused an estimated $10,000 in damage, was likely sparked by a heat lamp.

No people were injured.
