Two New Jersey State Troopers are credited with saving the lives of animals who had been trapped in a barn fire in Warren County Saturday.

Trooper I Jordan Siegel and Trooper Corey Smith responded to the fire on Delaware Road in Hope Township on Saturday morning and were told that the owners of the barn were on their way home and livestock was in the barn, about 15 feet away from the flames.

With the animals in a panic, Siegal and Smith started gathering the goats, sheep, llamas and chickens and built barricades out of pallets to keep them from heading back to the barn.

"We'd like to give an ‪'atta boy‬' to these two troops for a job well done! Keep up the good work," wrote State Police on their Facebook page.
