Cows Killed In One Of Two Early Morning Blazes In Pitt Meadows, B.C.

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 08 Feb, 2019
  • Cows Killed In One Of Two Early Morning Blazes In Pitt Meadows, B.C.

PITT MEADOWS, B.C. — Separate overnight fires have killed an unknown number of cows and destroyed a large industrial building in Pitt Meadows, east of Vancouver.


Pitt Meadows assistant fire chief Brad Perrie says the first call about a barn fire came in at midnight and crews arrived to find one building fully involved, with flames spreading to a second.


Perrie says the farmer and several neighbours were working to save the herd but it's expected that some animals have been lost.


Crews had just managed to contain that blaze when several trucks were dispatched to a second fire in an industrial area close to the Pitt Meadows airport.


A large, warehouse-like building was engulfed in flame by the time crews arrived and the roof of the structure has since collapsed.


A cause of both fires has not been determined but officials say they don't believe the two incidents are linked. (News1130, Global)
