WESTMORELAND, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a barn fire that killed more than two dozen cows at a central New York dairy farm doesn't appear to be suspicious.

Firefighters and farm workers managed to rescue dozens of other cows after the blaze broke out Monday morning at the B&KFedor Dairy in Westmoreland, 40 miles east of Syracuse.

Fire officials say 30 to 40 cows out of a herd of 110 cows died in the fire. It took firefighters about three hours to bring the blaze under control.

Officials say the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

And read, "Firefighters still on scene of dairy farm fire, 24 hours later."
