Firefighters were called to the farm in the Township of Wellesley to report fully involved fire barn.

The call came shortly before 6pm on Monday to the barn on Lobsinger Line, west of St. Clements.

Something & # 39; I'm living on the property was taken into account, the police say, but they confirm that there is a beast in the stable.

Regional police say that there were 400 pigs and 50 cattle inside the building at the time of the fire, but fire officials do not know how many animals were killed.

Firefighters from all three stations in Wellesley Township responded with a tanker of St. Jacobs.

Their immediate concern defended propane tank near the barn, before turning their attention to two large silo nearby.

Lobsinger line was closed for most of the evening in both directions from Hackbart Road to Moser Young Road.

Cause of the fire is still under investigation and the damage is expected to exceed $ 500,000, says the deputy head of the fire.
