Horse Safe after Trailer Catches Fire in GI


A horse is safe after a stock trailer caught fire in Grand Island with the animal inside.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. Saturday near the K-Mart parking lot on North Diers.

GIFD says the horse owners, from Kearney, got the horse out right away, but the hay bales inside the trailer were engulfed in flames.

Firefighters were able to quickly contain it, but smoke filled the area.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
