A building on the Kelsey Homestead property along OO Avenue can be seen fully engulfed with flames in this photo provided by an onlooker at the fire Sunday afternoon.

Iowa Falls Fire Chief Scott Eisentrager said the fire started as a controlled burn of brush at 14724 OO Ave., but it got out of control. The fire spread to a nearby building, and then to another smaller building. It also burned some "piles of debris" in the brush. Hardin County property records list the owner of the property as the Kelsey Homestead Trust.
