Investigators are asking for the public’s help pinpointing the origin of Thursday night’s fire at Happy Valley Farms that killed 35 American Saddlebred horses.
Walker County Assistant Chief Waymond Westbrook said investigators are looking for any video or photos of the fire that destroyed two barns at the nationally known Rossville, Ga., breeding and training farm.
“Due to the severe devastation to the stable, this information is needed to pinpoint the origin of the fire,” Westbrook said.

The flames were reported to 911 about 8:40 p.m. Thursday. By the time employees reached the top of the hill to rescue the show horses inside, the stable was completely engulfed.
Farm employees were only able to save one of the show horses housed in one of the barns.
