LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - These goats may have gotten a baaah-d idea
from Mrs. O'Leary's cow.
A fire destroyed a barn near Laramie, Wyo., on Monday.
Firefighters suspect some goats inside the barn started the fire by
nibbling through electric heater cords or knocking down a heating
Barn owner Dale Wood says the barn was a total loss and at least
three female goats died.
Neighbors alerted Wood's son to the fire, who called
firefighters and tried to put out the flames.
For years, legend had it that Catherine O'Leary's cow started
the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
