A fire broke out in the large barn on Jean Lanciaux’s farm at the corner of the 147 and the 141, in Coaticook, on Saturday night around 6:30 pm. Firefighters from both Coaticook and Compton responded but when they arrived, ten minutes after the emergency call, the barn was already engulfed in flames.

The farm previously belonged to Yvon Sage.
