Horses killed in Depew barn fire; another fire breaks out at nearby restaurant


DEPEW, N.Y. (WIVB) — A barn fire broke out on Broadway in Depew early Friday morning.

Depew police and fire officials responded to S&L Ranch on Broadway just after 1 a.m. When they got there, the structure was fully engulfed in flames.

It is believed that 12 horses and two dogs were secured in the barn and died as a result of the fire, which closed down Broadway from Dick Road to Borden Road for several hours.

The structure was a total loss. A gofundme page has been set up for the ranch owner. You can find a link here.

It’s not clear what started this fire, or another that occurred not too far away at the Thai House restaurant on Transit Road.

Police are trying to figure out if anyone was inside during the time of that fire, and if anyone was injured.
