Thirty cats, several horses and two dogs all died in a barn fire in Monticello Township early New Year's Eve.
In a post to its Facebook page, the Wright County Sheriff's Department reported deputies responded to the blaze on the 1800 block of 85th Street Northeast around 5:50 a.m. Sunday. The homeowner had awakened to the sound of loud popping noises coming from the barn. They then looked outside and noticed the fire.
Firefighters from Monticello and several neighboring fire departments attempted to extinguish the blaze, but the barn was a total loss.
