Unhappy Devastating news

My barn owner called me at 7:30am. I was still sleeping so I missed the call, she left me a message, which I didn't get till after I missed her call a second time around 9:30. As soon as I saw she was calling me that early I dreaded listening to the message. The barn next door to where I board Bella burnt down around 1am. All the horses were in and none made it out The barns are very close and they share a driveway. If the wind had been blowing the right way embers could have caught the barn where Bella is on fire. I'm just to completely devastated by the news. I didn't know any of them very well, but I had watched the owner of the barn and her trainer both ride their horses and always admired them. I can't even believe that they are all gone. As of right now I don't think the cause has been determined(my barn owner thinks maybe electrical). A friend of mine just posted that there were 6 horses in the barn. I cannot even imagine what the owners are going through. I want to the barn today but I don't even know what I would say, I've been sobbing since I got the news.

That's horrific... such sad news... someone was obviously watching over your barn though.

Thoughts are with the horse owners.
