(Reading) -- A fire has destroyed a 113-year-old Pennsylvania barn and has killed about two dozen animals that were inside.
Authorities say the fire broke out early Monday morning in Bern Township.
Firefighters were able to bring the flames under control in about an hour.
Fire officials said the barn's owner was treated at the scene for a minor injury he suffered while rescuing a horse from the burning barn. The barn's owner says 22 chicks and two kittens perished in the blaze.
A state police fire marshal is expected to visit the scene Tuesday in search of the fire's cause.
