NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Stephen F. Austin State University’s Beef Center barn was destroyed in a fire that occurred early Wednesday morning.

Luckily, no people or animals were hurt in the blaze.

It was big enough for a passing highway motorist to see the smoke and flames around 6 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Firefighters and safety crews were still on the scene this afternoon.

A state fire marshal will investigate the cause. Blake also said all the animals are safe. Sadly, lab equipment, ultrasound machines, saddles, and other supplies were destroyed.

The 6,000-square-foot barn served as a classroom lab for SFA students.
