Whitewater barn fire kills 200 animals

About 200 animals are dead, following an early morning barn fire in Whitewater.

The Whitewater Fire department says it responded to the fire on Tri County Line Road just after 6:30 Thursday morning. The roof of the barn had collapsed, and crews were unable to save the goats, sheep, lambs, birds, and dogs that were inside.

The Fort Atkinson Fire Department was also on the scene until about 10:00 a.m.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
