Fire Kills Dozens Of Animals At Monticello Horse Boarding Stable

August 24, 2019


STILL AHEAD FOR US TONIGHT, WE’LL HAVE A BREAKDOWN OF THE GAME. A FAMILY’S HORSE BARN CAUGHT FIRE, KILLING DOZENS OF ANIMALS INSIDE. IT HAPPENED EARLY THIS MORNING AT BIT OF HEAVEN, A BOARDING STABLE IN MONTICELLO. SIX HORSES DIED, ALONG WITH TWO FAMILY DOGS AND TWO DOZEN BARN CATS. JEFF WAGNER WENT UP TO MONTICELLO TODAY. HOW ARE THE OWNERS DOING NOW? THIS HAS BEEN TOUGH. LUCKILY, PEOPLE ARE COMING THROUGH TO HELP. IT’S BEEN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. Reporter: THOSE WORDS ARE UNDERSTOOD. JUST WOKE UP. Reporter: AND JUST A MATTER OF STEPS ONTO THIS PROPERTY. SHOCK, JUST NUMB. Reporter: NOT FROM THE COLD BUT THE EARLY MORNING FIRE THAT DESTROYED THE BOARDING FACILITY AT BIT OF HEAVEN, KILLING ANIMALS INSIDE. UNFORTUNATELY TWO FAMILY DOGS AS WELL. Reporter: THE HORSES OUTSIDE SURVIVED WITH THE OWNER STOPPING BY TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE OKAY. I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT GETTING WATER BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE RUNNING WATER. IT WILL FREEZE. WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY FRIENDS, WE’RE ABLE TO RUN ELECTRIC TO GET THAT GOING. THROUGHOUT THE DAY — GOOD LUCK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. HAVE A GOOD DAY. Reporter: VOLUNTEERS SHOWED UP WITH HAY, HORSE TACKS, HALTERS, AND MORE, BATTLING THE TEMPERATURES TO KEEP SURVIVING ANIMALS HEALTHY WHILE OTHERS STARTED THE DIFFICULT PROCESS OF CLEANING UP. MY PARENTS ARE OVERWHELMED BY THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND ARE EXTREMELY THANKFUL FOR THAT. Reporter: THEY DON’T OWN ANY OF THE HORSES BUT FEEL HEAVY GUILT. THEY ARE FOCUSED ON MAKING SURE THE OTHER HORSES CAN LIVE SAFELY. THE FAMILY SET UP A PAYPAL ACCOUNT WITH MONEY NEEDED TO SUPPORT THE ANIMALS AND MORE. FOR MORE INFORMATION, GO TO WCCO.COM AND AS I LEARNED FROM SUSAN’S STORY, OUR VIEWERS ARE WILLING TO LEND A HELPING HAND.
