ROSSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - State fire officials say 35 horses were killed when a fire swept through their stables and another building in northwest Georgia.

Glenn Allen, a spokesman for Georgia's fire marshal, says the fire was reported around 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Happy Valley Farm in Rossville, just south of the Georgia-Tennessee line.

No people were hurt in the blaze, but the damage was estimated at up to $6 million because of the value of the show horses that perished.

Allen described the animals as show horses, and said that some were valued as high as $250,000. He said three buildings -- two stables and a storage facility -- were destroyed in the blaze.

The cause was still under investigation late Friday morning.

Rossville is in Walker County, just south of Chattanooga, Tenn.
