Two people were killed Saturday after a fire destroyed a barn at an Ohio harness racing track, CNN reported.
The fire started around 5 a.m. Saturday in a barn on the Lebanon Raceway in southwestern Ohio at the Warren County Fairgrounds near Cincinnati, MSNBC reported.
The victims identities have not been released, Shane Cartmill, a state Fire Marshal spokesman said. He added that one of the victims had been identified as a male.
The 80 stall barn was housing 65 horses at the time the fire broke out. All 65 horses in the barn died.
By the time firefighters arrived at the scene the roof had already collapsed, Capt. Krista Wyatt of the Lebanon Fire Department said.
Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to other barns, CNN reported.
State and local fire officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
