Matthews Mint Hill Road has reopened near David Butler High School after an early morning fire destroyed a vacant barn.

Firefighters from numerous departments remained on scene Tuesday controlling hot spots. Crews are expected to remain on scene until 9a while investigators try to determine the cause of the fire.

No firefighters were injured but a neighbor tells Fox 46 News a bystander was injured after tripping over a fire hose.

Neighbors tell Fox 46 News' Caitlin Lockerbie the barn has been a problem with vandals in the past. The fire chief said the structure had no power.

Matthews Mint Hill Road reopened around 7a.
