A fire broke out Wednesday afternoon at the sheep facility at the University of Minnesota Crookston.

Four or five sheep and two lambs were killed in the mostly smoky fire.

Other animals were rescued, though, and kept warm with blankets and given oxygen.

Firefighters worked to ventilate the building and douse any hot spots. They don't yet know what caused it.
