Barn fire kills several animals in Milford Twp.

MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Several animals are dead after a barn fire Friday morning in Butler County.

The fire was first reported at about 6:40 a.m. at a barn in the 4200 block of Huston Road in Milford Township.

One woman was taken to the hospital with burns on her face because the flames were so intense.

Fire crews said several animals weren’t able to escape the barn.

Investigators said heat lamps likely caused the fire.

“With baby chicks you have to have a heat lamp when they're newborn. They're very dangerous. They're very hot,” Milford Township Fire Chief Corby Hansel said.

Fire officials say the situation could have been a lot worse but several fire departments answered the call and put the fire out before the flames could spread.
