TRENTON, N.Y. -- Fire crews once again were called to the scene of a barn fire that killed nearly 200 cows. It was reported there was smoke coming from a silo Monday morning.

The fire, last weekend at a farm on Whittaker Road in Trenton, burned a barn to the ground, killing 198 livestock.

Crews were called to the scene during the week last week after smoke was coming from a silo.

Thursday morning around 7:30 a.m., crews were called back as officials say the grain in the silos heated and smoldered.

The family who owns the farm has said they are grateful to all who have helped them in this time of need.

The Whitesboro Fire Department brought in a ladder truck to get to the top of the silo.

Crews are in the process of taking down the silos.
