Blaze kills 35 horses at Georgia farm for show horses

ROSSVILLE, Ga. — State fire officials say 35 horses were killed when fire swept through their stables at a business that raises show horses in northwest Georgia.

Georgia fire marshal spokesman Glenn Allen says the blaze happened Thursday at Happy Valley Farms in Rossville, just south of the Georgia-Tennessee line.

He says damage was estimated at up to $6 million because of the value of the horses that perished. Allen described them as show horses, and said that some were valued as high as $250,000.

Allen says two stables and a storage facility were destroyed.

The cause was still under investigation today.

Trainer Daniel Jenner says the structure was engulfed within 20 minutes.
