ANDOVER (CBS) — Seven horses are OK after a partial roof collapse at an Andover barn Sunday morning.

Technical rescue crews and a veterinarian were on the scene at the Flying High Stables on Jenkins Road.

The stable owner told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens that he was relieved that none of the horses were hurt.

“They are perfectly fine, the vet said they are OK,” he said. “Thank God.”

A chainsaw and front-end loader were being used at the stable, which may have to be demolished.

More than 100 structures have collapsed across the state during a period of record-setting snowfall, according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.

On Friday morning, two horses were killed in a barn collapse in Westford.
