A Hutterite colony in southeastern South Dakota is dealing with the loss of about 600 hogs in a weekend fire.
McCook County Emergency Manager Brad Stiefvater that the animals died of smoke inhalation when a fire started in a hog barn at the Golden View Hutterite Colony on Saturday afternoon. He says embers from a nearby burn pit likely were sucked into a vent and started the fire in the ceiling of the 5,600-square-foot barn.
Stiefvater says some of the surviving hogs might die later if they develop complications from smoke inhalation.
