Fire crews from Meaford and the Town of the Blue Mountains responded to a massive barn fire on Monday evening, March 1.
Flames and smoke could be seen for several kilometres from the Highway 26 and Christie Beach area location of the fire. A windy evening helped to fan the flames accelerating the destruction of the building.
Highway 26 at Christie Beach was closed for several hours as firefighters battled the blaze. There have been no reports of injuries.
A Go Fund Me has been established to assist the affected family: https://www.gofundme.com/f/fire-relief-for-local-family?utm_campaign=p_lico+share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer
