DANUBE, N.Y. -- Firefighters from several departments responded to a barn fire in Herkimer County Thursday night.

The fire broke out around 9:15 p.m. along Johnny Cake Road.

Officials say three pigs and two turkeys were killed in the fire.

It was a small barn, and fire officials say it has been destroyed.

"Luckily weather was not too bad tonight so that did not hamper our efforts. We had a great response from our department as well as mutual aid departments tonight. I was the first chief on scene and as I came around the corner, the very large pig was in the middle of the road, kind of surprised me so I had to advise the other responding units that there were some livestock in the road loose,” said Shannon Countryman, St. Johnsville’s assistant fire chief.

The cause is still under investigation, but no one was reported to be injured.
