Dairy farm fire in eastern Ontario kills 150 cows
Fire happened in older farm building at Leducdale dairy farm
About 150 young cows died Monday evening in a fire that destroyed a dairy farm building in eastern Ontario.
It happened at about 5 p.m. ET at the Leducdale farm in the North Glengarry, Ont., community of Dunvegan, about 80 km east of Ottawa off Highway 417.
High winds spread the flames quickly throughout the building, which had been built in 1930.
Farm owner Raymond Leduc said the fire was a blow to the dairy farm's production. The farm had 600 cows before the fire, with the rest of the herd housed in more modern buildings.
The cause of the fire is not yet known and a damage estimate was not immediately available.
