MONROE COUNTY, WV -

Shortly after midnight on Friday a building that housed large animals at the Valley Vet Clinic in Pickaway caught fire. While many animals were saved, 5 horses and a cow didn't make it out.

Fire crews from Union, Ronceverte, Alderson and Tri County were on scene for about 4 hours keeping the blaze under control. 

The fire was only about 20 yards from the clinic that housed all the cats and dogs and Union Fire Chief said they worked hard to avid burning both buildings.

"We got here and tried to keep the fire from spreading, but it was so hot it melted the siding on the clinic," he said.
