A huge fire at a cattle breeding facility in Australia has caused thousands of dollars in damage after at least 100 cylinders containing bull semen were destroyed...
A spokesman from the Country Fire Authority told Daily Mail Australia that the fire had "completely shredded the building."
Country Fire AuthorityGippslandcommander ChrisLoeschenkohlsaid the crew had to be wary of "projectiles" coming at them while they tackled the blaze.
"The liquid inside the cylinders was rapidly expanding and essentially the lids of the cryogenic cylinders were just popping off the top and projectiles were being thrown from the building," he told ABC.
"So firefighters went into a defensive mode initially to protect themselves, because there were also LPG cylinders at the neighboring property, and they did a magnificent job."
Loeschenkohladded that he has never had "anything to do with the artificial insemination (AI) side of things before" during his career.
