GLEASON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities suspect a lightning strike caused a barn fire that killed some animals in northern Wisconsin.

The Lincoln County 911 Center got a report of the barn engulfed in flames just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday. By the time deputies and firefighters arrived, the barn had collapsed.

Several animals that had been in the barn, including steers and goats, died in the fire. One goat was able to be rescued.

The fire happened outside Gleason in the Township of Russell.
