This is the most up to date and informative article-
Two dead in Lebanon Raceway fire | | Cincinnati.Com

There are some report that this is the worst stable fire in Ohio's history.

Slideshow of the remains of the barn:
Warning that some may find some of the photos disturbing.

That is absolutely tragic. In california we have lots of fires. During the cedar fire my friend's ranch burned and she could only save two horses. She was on her way back to pick up six more when she was stopped by a cop telling her she couldn't go any further. She lost her house, her ranch and the rest of her horses. I'm scared to death of something like that happening to my ranch.

"I was eight years old, and I've never forgotten her face when she told me about watching you ride. She told me she saw you, and your horse was dancing in the moonlight."

I can't imagine knowing my horse perished in a fire. What a horrible way to go.

This is so horrific. My thoughts are with the owners and the families of the two people who were killed as well...

I have been at horse shows countless times when I see people smoking in the barn. Even when no smoking signs and common sense tell you not to.
I wish people that smoke in barns would get hefty fines or arrested so they will think twice about doing it.
