A large barn was destroyed by fire overnight in Abbotsford.
Assistant Fire Chief Dave Rivett describes the scene:
He says, “We got a call for a fire on Township Line Road, a rural area of Abbotsford. On arrival, crews found a large barn complex fully involved with fire.”
Fire crews were hampered by the absence of any hydrants in the area.
He adds, “It’s always a challenge in these rural areas because we do not have any hydrants that are close so we have to shuttle water in.”
The old pig barn was leveled but no animals were hurt.
