The Australian Associated Press reported a fire Sunday killed at least 10 racehorses near a racetrack in Manila.

Four stables were affected by the blaze, which authorities are investigating. The stables were located in the Makati business district of Manila, police officer Jemci Acosta told the wire service.

Several horses were saved as the blaze struck near Santa Ana racetrack, which was not open at the time of the fire.
