The local RCMP says two young children, who built a campfire next to the building caused the fire in a large hay barn early last evening, northeast of the city.
It was located in the area of the 255 and Airport roads, and Fort St. John fire-fighters kept the flames from spreading to nearby buildings and fields.
However, they were unable to keep them from engulfing hay, and a vehicle parked inside the barn.
There were no injuries reported, and police say charges are not being considered.
