Lexington, Ky. – Around 25 horses were killed in a Kentucky barn fire over the weekend.
Local firefighters confirmed that a horse boarding and riding facility called Brannon Stables in Scott County – just north of Lexington, Kentucky – caught fire early Sunday morning.
Fire crews reported that the stable had been completely destroyed by the fire by the time they arrived. All of the horses inside the barn had died, which reportedly numbered around 25.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Support from friends of the farm and the local community had already started pouring in through a GoFundMe account that has already raised more than $61,000 as of Monday afternoon. All donations are set to help Brannon Stables in their rebuilding efforts.
