Eight horses were killed when a barn went up in flames Monday morning near Kent, fire officials said. Firefighters responded to the scene, in the 12900 block of SE 203rd Place, at about 7:40 a.m. after receiving reports of a barn ablaze, with a second barn threatened nearby. When they arrived on scene, the barn was fully engulfed in flames, and the smoke column from the fire could be seen more than a half-mile away, said Kyle Ohashi of the Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority. The barn could not be saved, so fire crews focused their efforts on preventing the spread of flames to any other structures. The fire was eventually extinguished, but not before the barn had partially collapsed inward.
