22 dairy cows die in barn fire

TOWNSHIP OF HALSEY (WAOW)-- A Township of Halsey barn is destroyed by fire early Friday morning.   

Crews were called to a fire at 513 East County Road F, sometime around 3:30 AM.  When crews arrived to the scene, the barn was fully engulfed. 

Officials say 22 dairy cows were housed in the barn.  Eleven of the cows did not make it out of the barn.  The other eleven cows made it out of the barn, but were too injured and had to be put down. 

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
