Fourteen cows died in a barn fire at Cedar Ridge Dairy in East Hampton Thursday afternoon.
Assistant Fire Chief Peter Freund said firefighters rescued two of the 16 cows on the farm.
The barn is located on Flanders Road.
The rescue was difficult due to a lack of water supply nearby, Freund said. Rescue crews obtained water from a pond down the road to put out the fire.
A cause for the fire has not yet been determined.
