#OttawaFire was called out just after lunch today (Fri.Sept.08) and are on the scene at one of our cities nicest old barns.
Prince of Wales has been closed due to this big fire, which broke out around 1pm this afternoon.
The barn is a little north of Fallowfield Road.
This is a dairy operation known as “Black Rapids Dairy Farm” and some fear that livestock may have been inside.
“Initial reports are that there are cattle inside,” said an Ottawa fire spokeswoman.
We can only hope that this isn’t the case.
This is a developing story; more to follow.
UPDATE; Sadly it has been reported that 80 cows have perished in this fire. More to come.
