PLAINFIELD, N.Y. (UPDATE) - The owner of a barn that caught fire in Plainfield says they lost about 30 animals, including cows and pigs, in that fire Monday.

Jane Stetson tells NEWSChannel 2 they had put the animals in the barn shortly before the fire started, around 4:00 p.m.

The fire on Armstrong Road destroyed the barn.

NEWSChannel 2 had reported in our TV broadcasts that all the animals had been rescued. NEWSChannel 2 received that information from Lorraine Chapman, president of the Unadilla Forks Fire Department. Stetson told WKTV that information is not accurate.

Officials are looking into the cause of the fire.
