SAPULPA, Okla. -- Several animals died after an early-morning barn fire in Sapulpa Saturday.

The Sapulpa Fire Department says three horses and two pigs were killed in the fire.

Owners were planning to show the animals at the Creek County show Saturday.

Firefighters say the fire broke out around 6 in the morning near North Ross and East Hill.

The flames were reportedly so large, Troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol could see the flames from the turnpike.

Fire officials didn't site a cause of the fire, but did say heat lamps were being used in the pig pens.
