Fire destroys barns at historic NYC horse racing track

The two-story barn housing horses at Goshen Historic Track went up in flames Wednesday, and the fire threatened to burn the other barns next to it. The three-alarm fire started inside one barn and quickly spread to another barn.

People rushed into the neighboring barns to save the spooked horses inside. "They were running around, really kind of in a panic". Firefighters and good Samaritans at the scene in Goshen were able to save all the horses in the burning barn. "The end barn here is the blacksmith shop and it looks like that's a total disaster too", Museum director Janet Terhune told ABC.

Staff at the track say the loss of the historic barn, original to the grounds, is hard to take in. And while investigators have not said what could have caused the fire, staff says it appears to have been an electrical problem.

The site is also the location of the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame, which was not damaged.
