Kentucky Barn Fire Kills Eight Thoroughbred Horses
Investigators in Kentucky are trying to determine the cause of a barn fire that killed eight thoroughbred horses this morning.
The fire took place on a farm in Lexington owned by the executive director of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.
The farm had been rented to trainer Gerry Carwood, who was able to save two foals from a smaller barn. He was unable to get to the eight other horses in the barn that burned to the ground.
The lineage or value of the horses that died in the blaze is not yet known.
