A chicken shed in Australia burst flames in the early hours of Monday – with almost 20,000 animals trapped inside.

Fierfighters were called to a poultry farm on Drysdale Road in Euroa at around in the morning after smoke was seen coming from the site.

Not yet determined

According to Country Fire Australia, emergency workers managed to control the blaze.

Authorities have not yet ascertained how the fire started, or how many chickens were killed.

Northern Ireland blaze

The incident follows a major fire in a chicken shed last week in Northern Ireland – though according to reports, fortunately no animals were trapped in this building.

A spokesperson for Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service released a statement while the services tackled the blaze, saying: “We are currently dealing with a chicken shed on fire at Frosses Road near Cloughmills. No chickens are in the shed. If passing on the Frosses Road please do not get distracted by firefighting operations.”
