DELANSON - Seven sheep are dead after a barn fire in Delanson early Tuesday morning.
It happened on West Shore Road. The call came in just after 4 a.m.
The Quaker Street Fire Department was first on scene and firefighters say the barn was fully engulfed in flames and the structure had partially collapsed before they got there.
Firefighters say the homeowners discovered the fire when they went out to feed the animals. They were able to get some sheep out on their own and firefighters assisted in saving another five.
However, ice on the ground and a lack of water made the operation a little tricky.
