PARKSTON, S.D. (AP) — A weekend barn fire northeast of Parkston killed 15 pregnant sheep.

Fire Chief Todd Lucas says that an electric heat lamp or a water tank heater likely caused the fire at the William Boddicker residence on Sunday night.

Lucas says flames had engulfed the barn by the time firefighters arrived, but they were able to quickly knock down the fire and save a nearby house.
