Horses Die In Fire

Thirty-five horses are now con­firmed dead fol­low­ing a barn fire in Branch County, Michi­gan last week­end.

The fire started Sat­ur­day around mid-day at a barn owned by Nathan Baker of Angola. The horses that died in the fire were report­edly owned by an Amish fam­ily.

Fire­fight­ers say it appears that an elec­tri­cal prob­lem lead to the blaze, but the cause is still not offi­cial and is still under inves­ti­ga­tion.

An inves­ti­ga­tor from the Fire Marshal’s office is expected to be on-site Wednes­day for a closer look.
