A neighbor called 911 when he saw smoke and flames. He tells Channel 3 he also heard explosions.

Daniel Jenner, one of the farm's horse trainers, said the structure was completely engulfed within 20 minutes.

"We were able to get one horse out of an end stall on the back side of the barn adjacent to the indoor arena. It was too hot and smokey to get anywhere near the main barn aisle."

The structures are valued at $1.2 million.
