Phoenix firefighters responded to a large barn fire on 67th Avenue and Baseline Road in Laveen on Saturday. 

Capt. Todd Keller says investigators found more than 250 dead animals. 

“One of the significant things about this was that making access to the barn was quite a distance, let alone they had a large bull they had to manage," Keller said. 

The bull was not injured, and crews were able to put out the fire quickly once on scene.

The Department of Agriculture, Arizona Humane Society and Arizona Exotic Animals have been notified.
