Giraffe Killed In Fire At Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

A fire at a popular amusement park in Vallejo has killed a giraffe at the park.

Authorities say a two-year-old male giraffe died this morning after a fire broke out in the giraffe barn at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

A spokesman for the park says two female giraffes housed in a separate part of the barn were not hurt.

Authorities say a preliminary investigation indicates the fire was sparked by a faulty electrical outlet.
