NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A family has lost almost everything during a tragic holiday fire.
Authorities say a fire at a Williamson County home Sunday killed 10 horses and several other animals.
The blaze broke out early Sunday morning and destroyed the family's home and barn, and it also killed several dogs.
Authorities say all the fire left behind was smoldering rubble and a few pieces of the home's frame.
Volunteer fire fighters got to the barn only to find the building was engulfed in flames and beyond saving. The nearest fire hydrant was a half mile away.
Neighbors say they will try to help the family during the Christmas holiday.
