COLDSPRINGS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say about 30 animals died following a barn fire in northern Michigan.
Crews responded Wednesday to the fire in Kalkaska County’s Coldsprings Township. The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports goats and sheep in the barn were killed.
WPBN-TV reports that by the time crews arrived the barn was fully engulfed in flames. A few other sheep inside made it out of the barn alive.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but the TV station says it may be related to a space heater that was used at the barn.
