CUYLER, N.Y. (AP) - Several cows have been killed and others have been injured after a barn roof partially collapsed at a central New York dairy farm.

Local media report that the roof on a barn housing about 500 cattle fell in around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Whey Street Dairy in the Cortland County town of Cuyler, 25 miles southeast of Syracuse.

At least five cows reportedly were killed and about a dozen others were injured.

Officials believe heavy, wet snow is to blame for the collapse.

Several volunteer fire departments were called in to help clear debris and snow.
