A fire in a dairy barn in the Canadian province of Quebec killed 120 cows late Wednesday night. Rescuers on the scene were only able to save seven of the Princeville dairy farm’s cows.

According to the Montreal Gazette, officials suspect that the fire was “of an electrical origin.”

The barn is considered a complete loss, and is valued at CA$1.4 million. Read more from the Montreal Gazette here.
