Morris, MN (WDAY TV) -- A barn fire in western Minnesota this weekend killed about 18-hundred hogs and caused nearly $700-thousand dollars in property damage.

The barn and hogs are the property of Spring Valley Farms south of Morris. By the time firefighters arrived Saturday morning just after 8, the barn was fully engulfed in flames.

None of the 18-hundred hogs could. About 45 firefighters were on the scene for more than 4-hours, using between 60 and 75-thousand gallons of water.

The state fire marshal is investigating.
