FREDERICKSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say more than 45,000 chickens have been killed in fires this week at two central Pennsylvania farms.

A fire Monday killed 32,000 chickens and caused an estimated $400,000 in damage to a chicken barn and fields at Neal Sensenig’s farm in Heidelberg Township.

Officials say the blaze isn’t considered suspicious.

A fire early Wednesday at a Bethel Township farm destroyed a barn and killed about 13,000 chickens.

No people were harmed. Fire marshals are investigating.

Heidelberg and Bethel townships are about 14 miles apart in Lebanon County.
