Several horses and goats died -- late Monday night -- in a Utah County barn fire.

Firefighters from Provo, Orem and Utah County all responded to the blaze, near 16th South on Geneva Road.

Officials say an adequate water supply proved to be a key problem, as the nearest fire hydrant was about a mile away.

Several horses were able to escape the flames, as the fire spread from one barn, to a trailer and a second barn.

It was unclear exactly how many animals were killed.
