About 200 animals killed in Whitewater barn fire

Posted: Updated:
WHITEWATER (AP) -- About 200 animals were killed when fire destroyed a barn near Whitewater.

Authorities don't know what started the fire that killed sheep, lambs, dogs, and birds.  Neighbor John Loomis says the roof of the barn had collapsed by the time he spotted the fire Thursday.

The Janesville Gazette says firefighters were on the scene for about three hours and bulldozed the barn to prevent the fire from spreading or reigniting.
