A major fire that began late Saturday night destroyed a structure and claimed the lives of some animals.

According to the Warren, RI Fire Department, at 11:24 p.m., Engines 6, 4, 5 and Tower Ladder 1 were dispatched to Barton Avenue for a possible structure fire.

Car 1 and first arriving companies found a fully involved barn as they approached the scene. Car 1 requested Engines 1, 2, 3, and Rescue as well as the East Bay tanker task force due to lack of hydrants in the area.

Crews were able to evacuate most of the livestock in the barn.

Tankers from Swansea Fire Dept, Rehoboth Ma Fire Department, Westport Fire Department, and Providence Canteen also responded to the scene.

Crews were on scene until 4:00 a.m. this morning.

The total count of animals that died in the blaze were not yet released. Warren FD expressed their thoughts for the owners at this difficult time.
