San Jose firefighters say downed power lines created a hazardous situation that hampered efforts to put out a barn fire last night.

The large barn at Emado Avenue and Monterey Road was engulfed in flames when firefighters first arrived at about 10:45 p.m. The barn was being used as furniture restoration workshop.

The fire brought down nearby power lines and firefighters had to stay clear for safety. The barn burned to the ground but there are no reports of injuries. The fire was declared under control after about two hours.
