Published on Monday, January 26, 2015

USDA inspectors reportedly cleared Hollywild Animal Park in an inspection Monday noting, “no non-compliant items were found” to cause an electrical fire that resulted in the death of 28 animals in a primate barn on Jan. 9.

The animals died of smoke inhalation, according to fire officials.

The report “is what we expected, and are now pleased to confirm publically,” Kim Atchley, Hollywild spokeswoman, said.

USDA officials were unavailable to comment on the report Monday.

Atchley said the animal park continues to move forward with plans to open the park to the public or weekends in March and daily beginning April 1.
