1 Horse Escapes, Numerous Animals Die in New Jersey Barn Fire

Authorities are trying to determine what caused a barn fire in New Jersey in which a number of animals died.

Firefighters had to drive through snow and slush to reach the scene in Manchester Township Thursday.

Police Capt. Todd Malland tells the Asbury Park Press a horse escaped from the barn. But Malland says at least three dogs, two goats and an undetermined number of cats and chickens perished.

The fire is not considered suspicious.
