The Zoofari owner received a call around 5:30 p.m. that the barn was on fire, according to the post from the zoo. The zoo website said the fire occurred after the zoo had closed for the day.
Zoo staff and the veterinarian arrived on scene to help rescue and care for 20 other animals.
“Grief counselors are being made available for staff, who are devastated by this tragedy and who cared deeply for these members of the Zoofari family,” the zoo said on Facebook.
Roer Zoofari will be closed until Friday, according to their website.
