At least 200 calves were killed in a devastating barn fire that ravaged an Amish farm in Metal Township, Pa., on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Chambersburg, Pa., Public Opinion, fire crews arrived on the scene too late to save the barn or animals. The building was mostly collapsed and there wasn’t much left.

"I arrived on scene and it was just kindles," Metal Township Fire and Ambulance Company Deputy Chief Keith Price said. "The main building was collapsed, the roof was already caved in and, of course, the animals were already deceased. There was nothing we could do."

The fire is still under investigation but no foul play is suspected at this point.
