Here's how you can help those impacted by a raging fire in the Hudson Valley that killed 28 animals.
On Saturday around 3 a.m., a raging fire broke out on the grounds at Mount Hope Training Center in Middletown.
Twenty-eight horses were killed in the fire, according to the New York Post.
The horses are harness-racing horses, many raced the evening prior in the Poconos.
