Crews worked to rescue 30 cows from what was a three-alarm barn fire Tuesday evening.

The fire started around 5:15 p.m. on the 500 block of Carpenter Road in Stoneboro.

Officials say there were 30 cows in the barn and nine died in the fire.

The remaining cows were loaded into trailers and taken to neighboring farms, according to officials.

Officials say one man did suffer from smoke inhalation after he went into the barn to help save the animals.
