LITITZ, Pa. (AP) - A chicken barn fire in Lancaster County has killed 37,000 birds.

The fire happened shortly after noon Tuesday at a two-story chicken house in Elizabeth Township owned by Nathan and Veronica Myer. The chickens were owned by Bell and Evans, a high-end poultry producer.

A fire official said the blaze may have been caused by an electrical malfunction and the building appears to be a total loss.
