The Enquirer reports that no cows were killed in a late night barn fire on Snow Road in Burlington.

The 66-year-old wood barn was destroyed by the blaze, but the farmer who owned it told the newspaper that 10 cows inside had made it out safely.

The owner, Donnie Snow, said all but one cow remains missing. Snow added that there was a new calf born Wednesday night that the farmers were not expecting.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Burlington Fire Protection District.
