When Green Forest firefighters arrived on scene, the building was completely consumed by the blaze. Embers from a nearby burn barrel reportedly caused the fire, which quickly spread due to strong winds and lack of precipitation. 

No injuries are reported at this time. Carroll County is currently under a burn ban due to the recent dry weather in the Ozarks.
