Approximately $225,000 was caused after a fire at a horse barn in Tilbury.
Assistant Chief Philip Thorburn said Station 19 was dispatched at around 6 a.m. on Saturday morning after reports of fire in a horse barn at 3405 Hornick Line.
“The owner of the home was up at the time and noticed a glow coming from the barn,” Thorburn said in a press release.
“On arrival, fire crews found the hayloft heavily involved in fire. The owner was able to remove all the animals from the barn prior to the arrival of the fire crews.”
Thorburn said additional firefighters and water tankers were brought in from Merlin, Raleigh and Wheatley to assist with extinguishing the fire.
“An aerial ladder from Tilbury was used to knock down the bulk of the fire,” Thorburn said.
“Crews remained at the scene for an extended period of time to ensure that deep seated fire in the attic was extinguished.”
There were no injuries at the fire, fire officials stated.
