EAST PENN TWP., Pa. - A huge fire tore through a horse farm in East Penn Township, Carbon County just before 2 p.m. Wednesday.
All nine race horses escaped and there were no other reported injuries.
Crews say the fire started in an attached empty apartment to the stables and riding ring.
At this time it's unclear how, but sawdust and hay inside the stables more than likely led to the fire spreading, according to crews on scene.
The apartment, stables, and ring are a total loss. Ashes, smoke and charred horseshoes are all visible at the scene.
The homeowner bought the 67-acre property to train race horses back in 2012. The family home sits on a ridge and safely away from the fire. He says he does have insurance.
