Fire destroys Pennsylvania dairy farm, kills 100 cows

Published:

A Wayne County, Pennsylvania dairy farm was wiped out after a devastating fire Tuesday afternoon, claiming the lives of 100 cows.

According to WNEP16, the fire broke out around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in the one-story dairy barn at the Jonas Cold Springs Farm near Pleasant Mount. One hundred and twenty cows were in the barn at the time.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the dairy farm, with the local community rallying behind the Jonas family.

“On January 9, 2018, the unimaginable hit the Jonas family as their farm went up in flames. Neighbors, the community, and family all came together to do anything they could to help, but unfortunately they still lost some of the family Holsteins to the flames. The farming community is a family, we care for each other and will support each other through it all, and I hope by creating this go fund-me more of the community can help. Any little bit could help and if you can’t give, we ask you to just keep them in your prayers! Thank you to anyone who gives or even takes their time to read this. Thoughts, prayers, and endless amount of love to Jonas family.”
