Deputy rescues horses from barn fire in Cass County
Ryan Hegel, Horace fire chief, said crews arrived to the fire that had fully engulfed the barn at 9302 25th St. S. just after 3:30 p.m. when a passing farmer reported it.
No injuries were reported. The horses were unharmed.
Hegel said the 36-by-60-foot barn is a total loss. Equipment including a skidsteer inside the barn was destroyed. The homeowner was not on scene.
Wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph made extinguishing the fire difficult, Hegel said.
