GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - Fire destroyed a barn at a Kentucky farm for retired thoroughbreds, but officials say no horses were in the structure at the time.

The building lost in the early Saturday fire, according to media reports, was the hospital barn at Old Friends farm in Scott County.

Barbara Fossum, a board member and volunteer, says the cause of the fire was not immediately known. No estimated property loss was given.

The nonprofit Old Friends, located outside Georgetown in central Kentucky, cares for rescued and retired horses. It was founded in 2003 by former Boston Globe film critic Michael Blowen.
