Firefighters in Egg Harbor Township battled a fire, right as 2013 arrived.
It happened just before midnight in a wooded area near Mill Road and Ridge Avenue.
Officials say callers reported seeing a large barn in the woods engulfed in flames.
Several departments responded to the scene, including fire investigators and forest fire units.
The location of the fire down a single road made access to the area difficult, and firefighters worked for more than an hour to extinguish the blaze.
Authorities say the barn was recently purchased by a nearby church.
No injuries were reported, but investigators are calling the fire suspicious at this time.
