Animals Killed In Rowan County Barn Fire

Fire destroyed a barn and killed several animals in Rowan County early Wednesday morning.

Lisa Goldstein's fiance owns the barn on a farm along Upper Craney Road, about 15 miles outside of Morehead. He says barking dogs alerted him to the fire around midnight. The blaze killed several goats and birds. Other goats suffered burns.

Goldstein said she was devastated.

"What caused it? Is there something we could've done differently? Just tremendous sadness. Some of these goats I lost, I raised from bottle babies - a couple of days old. I've had them for a couple years. So, I'm just kind of in shock I think," she said.

Firefighters say they don't know what caused the fire, but say it might have been an electrical issue.
