The building was fully engulfed in flames and was lost, according to Ryan Cross, a captain at the Martensville Fire Department. Firefighters protected other structures in the area from damage.
No chickens were killed in the fire.
The fire commissioner has been called in to do an investigation. Martensville fire chief Dean Brooman said the estimated damage is $100,000.
Martensville had two pumper trucks at the scene. The city of Warman sent a pumper and a tanker, while the town of Dalmeny sent a fire tanker truck.
