Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Staff

Afire that could be seen kilo­me­ters away de­stroyed part of the Viens pig­gery on route 143 in Stanstead East late yes­ter­day af­ter­noon. This photo taken on Brown’s Hill road shows the ex­tent of the fire. As we left, rudely in­vited to do so, ‘Jour­nal­ist are only bad news’, we were told, Ayer’s Cliff fire­fighter were ar­riv­ing, join­ing Stanstead’s and Stanstead Town­ship al­ready on the scene.

As power was still ac­ti­vat­ing one of the con­nected barn fans, we could see smoke com­ing out of it and the pan­icky sound of the pigs in­side of it while fire­men were try­ing to squelch the fire and se­cure the area where at least half a dozen propane tanks are lo­cated.
