WENHAM, Mass. (AP) - Wenham’s fire chief says two horses have been killed in a barn fire.

The fire in the Cherry Street barn was reported just after 4 a.m. Sunday.

Chief Robert Blanchard tells The Salem News (https://bit.ly/1pU6w8m ) the blaze quickly consumed the “old, dry barn” that was already fully involved by the time firefighters arrived.

The two horses used for rising were locked in for the night and couldn’t get out, while the intensity of the flames kept firefighters from getting in to save them.

Although the owners of the barn lived nearby, they did not see the fire. A neighbor called the fire department.

The cause is under investigation but Blanchard says it does not appear suspicious.
