TOWN OF CASSEL, Wis. — A fire has killed dozens of cows and has destroyed a barn and two sheds at a Marathon County farm.

The blaze happened Sunday at a farm in the Town of Cassel. Marathon County sheriff's officials say 75 to 80 head of cattle died. About two dozen more got out of the barn, but may have to be killed because of smoke inhalation.

WAOW-TV says the cause of the fire is undetermined.
