Fighting a fire that could be seen for miles along I-80, multiple crews worked for hours Tuesday night to control and put out a fire at a farm near the Davenport Municipal Airport.

It started shortly before 8:30 p.m., and by the time crews arrived, flames had spread throughout a barn, a home and several neighboring buildings.

There’s no word on what might have sparked it.

Crews from Davenport, Donahue, Eldridge, Maysville, Walcott, Park View and Long Grove assisted in the firefight.

There were no reports of any injuries.
