Dozens of cows were killed after a fire broke at Jonas Cold Springs Farm Tuesday afternoon.

Officials say the barn is a total loss.

There were more than 100 cows, most of them died. The cows that did make it out were moved to another barn.

According to a Honesdale Fire Department's Facebook page, a volunteer firefighter broke his leg after falling from the icy conditions.

Investigators say they believe the fire started in the milk storage room.

The fire is being ruled accidental.
