Two horses were initially rescued and were moved to the main barn. Crews worked for hours to rescue the other two, who were freed around 11:30 a.m.

The owner said it was a miracle the horses survived. Multiple first responders and veterinary professionals responded to the collapse.

The metal structure has reportedly been in place for about 35 years.
