Ten wild animals bore the brunt of fire that broke out at a wildlife park in Ohio. The fire broke out all of a sudden in the African Safari Wildlife Park in northern Ohio on Thursday.
The reports of the fire began breaking at around 6.15 pm, and the firefighters were alerted. The animals that succumbed to the fire include three Giraffes, three red river hogs, three bongos and one springbok. The park hosts around 300 different animals and the park officials have accounted for all the animals so far apart from the ten that were recorded to have died.
“We are grateful that our staff is safe and no one was injured, but the loss of the wildlife that we care for every day is tragic for our team members who love these animals,” the park stated in its Facebook statement.
The exact reason for the breakout of the fire has not yet been identified. It has been stated that the park experienced a brief power flicker before the fire was noticed broken. Propane tanks were found stored inside the barn and can be one of the reasons, though the actual reason would be ascertained only after a proper investigation.
It was shown that two giraffes had a surprise escape from the fire. You can witness it here
