MOIRA, NY - 30 cows are killed in a barn fire Friday afternoon.

The volunteer fire department responded to the scene on Alburg Road.

When they got there the barn was completely engulfed in flames.

Four firefighters sustained minor injuries and have been treated and released.

Fire Chief Tim Trimm said the barn was struck by lightning last week and some appliances were affected, which may have caused the fire.

He said in addition to the 30, 6 to10 cows may have to be put down.
