CHICAGO — Authorities say as many as 32 horses died in a fire that destroyed a stable near Chicago.
Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Chief Paul Deraedt says firefighters responded to the blaze at the Valley View Acres horse boarding facility in unincorporated Woodstock shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday.
He says only five of the 37 horses in the stable are believed to have survived the fire, but they appear to be in good condition.
Valley View Acres’ website says it also breeds and trains a variety of horses, including thoroughbreds and show jumping horses.
Deraedt says preliminary estimates put the total value of the dead horses at more than $1 million and that each was likely insured for about $50,000 to $75,000.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
TUCSON, Ariz. — Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was among the hundreds of cyclists who completed an annual bike ride in Tucson.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that Giffords rode across the finish line in a El Tour de Tucson cycling ride Saturday morning.
In an email, Giffords says she has worked hard to get back on her bike.
The Tucson native rode with her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, and a friend in the 12-mile fun ride.
Kelly told KGUN-TV that his wife wants to do a 40-mile ride next year.
KGUN says more than 8,000 riders showed up for the races, which include courses of various distances.
Giffords, who was critically wounded in the 2011 Tucson mass shooting, has been training on a recumbent bicycle for six months.
