Stable Fire Kills 24 Horses in New Jersey

It is reported this day that a fire in a stable at Perretti Farms, a Monmouth County, New Jersey horse farm claimed the lives of 24 horses who were in stalls and unable to get out.

It is noted that the fire may have been electrical in origin, and it spread rapidly due to large quantities of combustible hay and varnished woodwork in the barn.

This points out the necessity of making sure that the electric service in your indoor animal facilities is as well maintained and properly constructed as the electric service in your home that you trust your own life to. The services of a good residential/commercial electrical contractor are something that all stablemen and agisters should invest in-it is money well spent.
