Fire destroys dairy barn

Fire destroyed a barn and 29 dairy cattle at a farm west of Elmira at the Floradale and Listowel Roads.

Damage is estimated at about $500,000.

Many of the 192 cattle escaped when the family opened doors so they could flee.

Although the cause of the fire is not definite, there are suspicions that it might have been a skid steer loader.
