    It took 25 firefighters two hours to put out a barn fire that killed eight horses in Frederick County, Maryland.

    Eight horses were killed after a large fire broke out in a barn in Union Bridge, Maryland.

    The fire erupted around 4:30 p.m. Saturday on the 10000 block of Bessie Clemson Road and 25 firefighters battled the flames for two hours before extinguishing it, according to the Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services.

    The flames caused part of the roof to collapse and forced firefighters out of the building.

    Photos of the burning barn show plumes of gray smoke billowing into the air and bright orange flames bursting through windows.

    The cause of the fire is unknown.
