Ho, hum, another barn fire

Another barn fire has claimed nine horses, this time in Norwich Township, Oxford County.

The cause of this fire is not considered suspicious.

The news media has been paying a lot of attention to barn fires this winter after 48 race horses died in Puslinch Township and soon after 12 Arabian horses died in a fire near Mount Forest.

There were five barn fires in January and a few more in February, including one in Elgin County that claimed 90 dairy cattle.

That number of barn fires is not considered unusual.
