Posted in MD Barnmaster Blog
Barn fires — every horse owners’ worst nightmare. The recent months have seen an unusual increase in the number of tragic stable fires. A March 10th barn fire near Chicago, IL, killed six horses at a small race horse farm. A February 21st barn fire at a Michigan Thoroughbred farm killed 27 horses and sent an injured employee to the hospital. A barn fire in New Jersey in January killed 22 show horses. These are just three of the past year’s most recent horrific fire incidents. Barn fires like these are a serious cause of death and injury to horses and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage and losses.
