LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Trying to keep animals warm on a chilly night might be the reason for a barn fire in Lee County. It happened at Eagle Ranch, just off of Luckett Road Extension around 1:15 a.m.
Nearly a dozen goats, as well as a number of sheep, chickens, ducks and horses where inside when the fire started.
The Assistant Fire Chief tells WINK News they believe the heating lamps caused the fire that killed several animals.
The fire does appear to be an accident.
