A 59-year-old man is dead after fire tore through a shed in Stratford Sunday morning.

The RCMP, Island EMS and Crossroads Fire Department were called to the fire on Aylward Drive around 8:30 a.m. But police said flames had already destroyed the building.

Police said they are looking into the cause of the fire, but they said the man was working on machinery around the time it started.

The man’s name has not been released.
