Thousands of pigs dead in Lehigh County barn fire


Multiple fire companies responded to a two-barn fire in Lynn Township just before 6 a.m. Saturday.

Officials said when they arrived at the scene, the first building had already burned down. The second building quickly went up in flames soon after.

Lynnport Community Fire Company officials said that each barn held roughly 2,000 pigs. Officials said none of the livestock inside survived.

There's no word on what caused the fire.

The State Police Fire Marshall is currently investigating the cause of the fire.

Fire officials said the DEP and Department of Agriculture are working to determine what to do with the pigs.
