"I’d like to think fire training kept me safe, and horse training kept the horses safe,” Ziec said.
Ziec called 911 as she ran into the barn. She said she didn't remember seeing flames, but she could smell the smoke. Three horses were trapped in stalls, and emergency responders were having trouble reaching the farm, 2480 Barreville Road, because of downed trees caused by severe thunderstorms.
The first emergency crews reached the farm 18 minutes after Ziec called, and the barn already was a total loss, Ziec said.
