Abbotsford crews battle Ross Road barn fire

No one hurt in blaze on Monday afternoon

Abbotsford crews battled a barn fire in the 4400 block of Ross Road – north of Townshipline Road – on Monday afternoon.

Abbotsford firefighters responded to the call shortly after 1 p.m. and found the building fully involved when they arrived, according to assistant chief Ron Hull. In all, about 30 members worked on the blaze but the structure was a “total loss,” he said.

Hull said there were no injuries to people and no animals in the barn.

Investigators were on scene yesterday but a cause has not yet been determined, he said.

Hull said that there have been a significant number of barn fires in Abbotsford in recent months and his fire department plans to increase fire prevention education for farmers.
