Six show horses were killed Friday in a barn fire in the rural town of Dixon near Sacramento.

The fire started about 1:30 a.m. Friday at Dreamland Farms, authorities said.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire contained to just the barn and a nearby building, even though they struggled with a lack of water.

The horses were hunter and jumper animals raised for show and to perform, according to the owner.

The farm’s website says it was established in 1984 and has 16 horses listed for sale.

The prices listed for each horse range from $12,000 to $50,000.
