Crews arrived around 8:30 a.m. at 67 Grove St. and found smoke coming from an old barn on the property used for storage.

Heritage spokesperson Amy Dean said a vent fan overheated and caused some wood to smolder.

She said firefighters removed the fan and vented the smoke.

There were no injuries and Heritage was expected to be open as usual Friday afternoon.
