Stable hands quickly removed all the horses from a stable damaged by fire in Newmarket, England, on Monday.

The Suffolk barn was operated by racehorse trainer Luca Cumani.

More than 30 firefighters from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service attended the blaze, which affected part of the roof area in the 30-metre building.

Stable hands spotted the fire as it took hold beneath roof tiles mid-morning and successfully led the horses to safety.

Cumani went on Twitter to think firefighters for their quick response and efforts to contain the blaze.

Most of the complex has survived.

Firefighters were at the scene for more than five hours.

Authorities are working to establish the source of the fire.
