BERTIE COUNTY, N.C. — Around 28,000 chickens were killed Tuesday morning after a North Carolina farm caught fire.

Officials said it happened in one of the six chicken houses on Tom Moore Farms in Bertie County.

Fire officials said strong winds spread the fire quickly and the house was already destroyed when emergency responders arrived. The owner said the chickens were almost a month old.

There is no word on what started the fire. The investigation is ongoing.
