Hundreds Of Hogs Believed Killed In Barn Fire

Hundreds Of Hogs Believed Killed In Barn Fire
PIERRE, SD -

Hundreds of hogs housed in a facility near Pierre are believed to have died in an early morning fire in a hog barn.

Pierre Rural Assistant Fire Chief Sean Kruger says he isn't certain how many pigs were actually in the 1,000-head facility, but he estimates a 50 percent loss of life.

The fire was reported about 6 a.m. at a hog barn owned by Christensen Farms east of Pierre.

Kruger says one half of the large facility was destroyed while a fire wall protected the other half. He says farm staff took care of the pigs, while firefighters tended to the blaze.

Kruger says a cause hasn't been determined but the blaze is not considered suspicious.

There were no injuries.
