Animals killed in late night fire in North Gower

Five cows, three horses and a number of chickens have been killed in a late night barn fire in North Gower.

Ottawa Fire says 911 received multiple calls reporting a fire in a barn on Prince of Wales Drive.

A 100 foot by 30 foot barn was on fire when crews arrived on scene, and the blaze spread to a second smaller barn.

Fire crews were called back to the site of the fire around 11:45a.m. because the fire had reignited. A 25-foot 5th wheel trailer and a farm tractor were also destroyed.

There is no word on the cause of the fire.

Damage is estimated at $545,000.
