A massive fire in Washington County completely destroys a barn.

It happened Saturday afternoon in the 9000 block of State Route 26 in Washington County.

Washington County Sheriff's Deputies say 10 adult goats and 14 baby goats were killed in the blaze.

The fire was contained to the barn, which is now a total loss.

Deputies say the owner is distraught after losing her animals which were used to produce milk and cheese.

The cause is still under investigation and it's not believed to be suspicious.

The Little Muskingum, Reno, and Fearing Volunteer Fire Departments all responded.

State Route 26 was closed for over an hour as they worked to put out the fire.
