FENNVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — The roof of a barn collapsed Thursday morning in Fennville, resulting in the death of a miniature horse.
It happened around 10:30 a.m. in the 2800 block of Old Allegan Road.
Four miniature horses were trapped inside the barn when the roof collapsed, according to Lt. Robert Heuer with the Hamilton Fire Department.
Firefighters later shoveled snow off the roof of a modular home — which is attached to the barn — to prevent the roof from collapsing.
That home was not damaged when the roof of the barn collapsed.
Heuer said the barn roof was covered in about three and a half feet of snow when it collapsed.
