GOSHEN -

Cleanup crews have wrapped up at the historic Goshen Racetrack after a fire destroyed the barn there earlier this week.

Authorities say the barn was destroyed Wednesday night during a fast-moving electrical fire.

All of the horses were safely removed before the barn went up in flames.

The structure has been around since the early 1800s and housed up to 36 prized racehorses.

Officials say the barn will be rebuilt.
