HOPKINS TWP., Mich. -- A fire destroyed a barn on the Ybema Farms in the Hopkins area and killed several animals.
The barn fire ignited overnight, with crews responding just before 2 a.m. Thursday morning.
The 80-by-120-foot barn is considered a total loss.
About 15 young cattle died, many others are seriously burned, farm owner Marty Ybema said. The farm also lost equipment and feed. Ybema said neighbors were already helping with feeding the surviving animals.
Nobody was hurt.
Ybema tells FOX 17 there is a good chance they will rebuild but are dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. The Ybema's set up a GoFundMe page, if you would like to help them rebuild their barn, click here.
The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
