Horses Saved From Howard Co. Fire

A Howard County family managed to save their horses just before their barn was destroyed by fire Sunday afternoon.

The two-alarm fire broke out at around 1 p.m. in the 2600 block of Jennings Chapel Road in Woodbine. By the time Howard County Fire and Rescue Services arrived, the barn was completely engulfed in flames.

Because the barn was located in a non-hydrant area, extra water tankers were required to put the fire out. Crews from Frederick and Montgomery Counties were eventually called in before the flames were brought under control.

No injuries were reported, though it is unclear how many horses were in the barn at the time of the fire.

The cause is under investigation.
