CHELAN — About 20 goats and 20 chickens perished in a barn fire early this morning in Chelan.
The cause of the fire was probably a heater or heat lamp that malfunctioned, said Tim Lemon, chief of Fire District 7 in Chelan.
The fire was called in by someone who saw the fire from several miles away, Lemon said.
The owners of the barn did not realize the barn was on fire until firefighters were half way to the scene. By that time, the barn was too engulfed in flames to save.
No one was injured and no other structures were damaged, Lemon said. The fire was reported at 3:57 a.m.
