More than 2,000 pigs killed in On­tario barn fire

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

NORTH MID­DLE­SEX, Ont. — More than 2,000 pigs have died in a barn fire north of Lon­don, Ont. On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice say they re­sponded to a call around 3 a.m. near Parkhill, Ont. on Tues­day. They say the barn was de­stroyed in the fire, but no peo­ple were hurt. Po­lice say the in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­mains with the Mid­dle­sex County Fire in­ves­ti­ga­tor, but the Of­fice of the Fire Mar­shal has been no­ti­fied. A hand­ful of other barn fires have killed an­i­mals in the last two weeks in south­west­ern On­tario — a dozen horses died last week in a barn fire near Guelph, Ont., and a blaze in early Jan­uary south of Guelph killed 43 race­horses. About 500 goats and 30 cows were also killed in a barn fire over the week­end in the area.
