Exploding manure fire may have killed horses
Maintaining pastures is an important part of keeping horses or goats and could have prevented this fire. ~ HfH
Spontaneous combustion of manure or an electric fence were being investigated as possible causes of a fire in Palmdale Sunday that killed multiple animals, according to L.A. County Fire Department Capt. Bo Ament.
Four horses and seven goats died in a remote desert area barn at 5526 East Avenue T-10 (map).
Among the dead was a pregnant horse and 4 month old colt. All the horses were a Friesian breed.
