Update: Fire crews return to put hots pots out at barn as friends show support to owner

SCHODACK, N.Y. – The Castleton Fire Department is back at
the scene of a barn fire on Saturday to knock down remaining hot spots.

The fire at a dairy barn located at 1803
Brookview Avenue broke out Friday around 12:30 p.m.  At least 100 firefighters responded to the
blaze.

Milking cows on the farm were uninjured
because they were grazing at the time of the fire.  However, 20 heifers, female cows younger than
3 years old that have not had a baby, were killed.

The owners spoke to NEWS10 ABC on Saturday
and said that some of the milking are currently on a neighbors farm as cleanup
begins.

A number of friends and neighbors showed
support on Saturday to help the owner of the farm, Schodack Town Justice Paul
Peter.

There is no word on what caused the fire.
