25 horses killed in Scott Co barn fire

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) – More than two dozen horses died after a barn caught fire in Scott County.

Firefighters say it happened early Sunday morning at Brannon Stables on Ironworks Pike.

Teams say the barn was completely razed when they got there. There is still no official news on what triggered the fire. Firefighters say they will return to the scene this week to continue the investigation.

Elena Jordan says 25 horses were killed in the fire, including one who rode.

“His name is Cash. He was 12, “Jordan said.” He’s a thoroughbred horse and he’s just the best horse out there. Super sweet and kind. “

A show horse, Jordan says Cash got its name from the cashew color it had when it was shorn in the winter.

Jordan says the tragic accident left her and 24 other mourning bikers alike as they each lost something very close to their hearts.

As friends and former bikers on the farm pour their support on social media, a GoFundMe has already raised more than $ 65,000with all donations intended to help Brannon Stables in their rebuilding efforts.

“We will only continue to raise awareness and raise funds because it is a very long process. But together we will make it slowly, “Jordan said.
