2 quarter horses lost in Horace barn fire

There was a tragic barn fire near Horace today.

Horace, ND (WDAY TV) - There was a tragic barn fire near Horace today. 2 quarter horses were lost in the blaze. A propane tank inside blew up and made it difficult to put out the fire. Flames continued shooting out of the building for more than an hour, and electrical wires sparked inside.

Neighbors say when they showed up; it was already too late to save the horses trapped inside.

"Those horses become part of your family and I know these horses were very expensive horses, not that that matters, you hate to see any animal suffer that way."

Firefighters from Horace, West Fargo, and Davenport all helped fight the blaze.
