    Authorities are investigating a fire at a poultry house near Swoope that killed at least 10,000 turkeys.

    The fire occurred Tuesday night at Hilltop View Farm in August County, near the Shenandoahs. Owner Jim Ruleman tells WVIR-TV that he discovered the fire when he went to the building to investigate an exterior light that was out.

    The fire caused at least a half-million dollars in damage. No injuries were reported.

    The cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
