Officials are investigating a shed fire in Gilbert.

Gilbert fire said the fire started in shed on a property near Ray Road and Val Vista Drive around 3:15 a.m. on Friday.

The homeowner thought the barn was on fire but it turns out it was an adjacent structure similar to a covered pen. That's where fire officials say the homeowners kept saddles and three of their pigs.

The homeowners were able to get two of the pigs out, but unfortunately the other one could not be saved.

Fire crews put out the fire quickly before it spread to any other areas.

The cause is under investigation and no other animals were hurt.
