This morning during our regular 'Tell Me Something Good,' Amy talked about a story of first responders at a barn fire. They managed to save all of the farm animals in a barn in Holden Massachusetts.
The livestock manager of the farm, Meg Gennings shared some photos from the farm during the fire. The Holden firefighters managed to save 400 chickens, 70 cows, 80 sheep and a 12-year-old pet camel named Joshua from the barn fire.
I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Thankfully the animals are all out. I'm shellshocked right now pic.twitter.com/XWy8LdooCS— Meg Gennings (@MegFarms) April 3, 2018
It took firefighters about 2.5 hours to knock out the fire, but according to Gennings all of the animals got out safely so shoutout to this fire department.
Also shoutout, Gennings was listening to the show and shared a photo of some of the animals peacefully grazing.
Cried my eyes out listening to @bobbybonesshow this morning and the fire was mentioned. It so so touching how people can come together in a tragedy. Josh and friends say thank you! pic.twitter.com/8PDKE3qFi3— Meg Gennings (@MegFarms) April 5, 2018
We're happy to hear that Gennings and the other humans as well as all of the animals are safe. This is definitely a tell me something good. Gennings called into the show to tell us more about hearing the story on our show as well as the fire.
If you can and are willing to help their Lilac Hedge Farm, LLC during this difficult time, they are trying to raise $25K to help with repairs and give the animals back their housing. Their GoFundMe account is here.
