No cause yet in Columbia County barn fire


TAGHKANIC, N.Y. – Firefighters are still working to determine the cause of a Friday night barn fire in Taghkanic.

The fire broke out along Sopok Road Friday night killing at least 30 animals. Joe Macri, the barn owner, said miniature horses, sheep, rabbits, pigs and goats were all lost in the fire.

One miniature horse escaped the flames, but it eventually had to be put down.

"I had a full barn," he said. "This was my life. Now everything is gone. Everything."

Macri's son said the barn had just recently been built.
