Eight Miniature Horses Safe From Barn Fire in Chippewa County

A fire Tuesday afternoon in Chippewa County destroyed a barn and damaged part of the house next to it.

Firefighters say the owners of the house saw smoke when they pulled into the driveway of their house on South Water Tower Place in Kincheloe.

There were eight miniature horses in the barn, but they were saved.

Bales of hay in the barn kept the fire going.

Kinross, Pickford and Rudyard Volunteer Fire Departments all responded. The cause is still under investigation.
