Some of the cows escaped the blaze but had to be shot by OPP officers later because they were too badly hurt.

Smoke from the fire could be seen from as far away as the CBC studios on Riverside Drive W.

Officials say the fire started when straw built up around a straw shedding machine in one of the barns at farm.
