A barn fire in La Grange, Ky., northeast of Louisville, killed 10 horses on Oct. 29.
Around 3:30 a.m., a neighbor reported a fire at the barn that was home to the Thoroughbreds. Major Keith Smith of the La Grange Fire and Rescue Department said firefighters arrived on the scene only a few minutes later to find the 6,700 square foot building in flames.
Although the fire department quickly ruled that the fire was not suspicious – there was no insurance on the building or animals – the cause of the fire is undetermined. The horse owners were renting the property.
