Barn fire kills 38 horses, sends employee to hospital
Thirty-eight horses died Tuesday night in a barn fire in Grass Lake Township, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reported.
An employee at the Campbell Stables horse farm was taken to the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, suffering from burns to his hands and legs.
The fire, which broke out shortly after 10 p.m., destroyed the barn, the Citizen Patriot reported. Flames from the fire shot 100 feet into the air, witnesses said.
The cause of the fire had not been determined, but it’s not suspicious, Grass Lake Township Fire Chief Greg Jones told the Citizen Patriot.
Grass Lake Township is just west of Washtenaw County.
