Three giraffes are among the approximately 10 dead exotic animals after a fire broke out at a Ohio wildlife park Thursday evening.

The fire ripped through a barn at the African Safari Wildlife Park in Port Clinton, according to a Facebook post from the company.

Three giraffes, three red river hogs, three bongos and a springbok perished according to the company’s co-owner via a Record-Courier report.

“We are grateful that our staff is safe and no one was injured, but the loss of the wildlife that we care for every day is tragic for our team members who love these animals,” the park said in the Facebook post.

“The animals lost in this tragedy were part of our African Safari family, and the Park will be closed on Friday as we mourn their loss and care for the other animals living on the 100-area Park,” they added.
