Horse barn collapses


NORTH STONINGTON — A barn at 182 Cossaduck Hill Road collapsed this morning sending emergency personnel to the scene to rescue the horses inside.

North Stonington Fire Department personnel responded to the scene shortly after 5:50 a.m. when the first call for aid was received. Emergency personnel were still on the scene hours later as volunteers continued to help the owners with care of the animals.

Meanwhile, state police in Connecticut and Rhode Island reported numerous crashes due to icy road conditions on Interstate 95 this morning.

Connecticut State Police were having difficulty finding tow trucks to come for some of the disabled vehicles as companies were busy with the volume of accidents. No serious injuries were reported.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
