BRADDOCK HEIGHTS, Md. - Fifteen horses were rescued from a massive fire that destroyed several buildings in rural Frederick County Monday morning.
Around 12:15 a.m. fire crews were called to 6102 Holter Road for a report of a barn fire. When units arrived they found multiple buildings on fire including a large two-story shed and a barn.
The Braddock Heights Volunteer Fire Company quickly called in additional water tankers due to the lack of hydrants in the area.
Firefighters rescued 15 horses from the flames. There were no reported human injuries, but 25 chickens perished in the blaze.
Officials said the three buildings where the fire started are a complete loss.
Initial damage estimates place the total loss at $1,000,000.
