MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities are trying to determine what caused a barn fire in New Jersey in which a number of animals died.

Firefighters had to drive through snow and slush to reach the scene in Manchester Township Thursday.

Police Capt. Todd Malland tells the Asbury Park Press (https://on.app.com/1wJLEYo) a horse escaped from the barn. But Malland says at least three dogs, two goats and an undetermined number of cats and chickens perished.

The fire is not considered suspicious.
