It's not quite as major as we thought.- George Vandenbroek, Cardigan Feed Services
The business's operation manager, George Vandenbroek, believes the fire started in the electrical room. Around two tonnes of grain feed was destroyed, but given the winds Vandenbroek said it could have been a lot worse.
He's thanking the Cardigan, Montague and Georgetown firefighters.
"Given how the wind was and the conditions last night the firemen did a fantastic job to get the fire under control as quick as they could. They are to be commended on the quick response," said Vandenbroek.
"We'll be back in operation here very shortly. It's not quite as major as we thought, so I think we're good to go."
Vandenbroek said customers looking for feed should call ahead, but he believes the trucks will be on the road today making deliveries.
The cost of damage is still being assessed.
