Chicken barn destroyed by Jan. 9 Yatton area fire

MAPLETON – A chicken barn was completely destroyed by fire near Yatton on Jan. 9.

Mapleton fire chief Rick Richardson said Woolwich firefighters were first on the scene of the fire near the intersection of 3rd Line and Yatton Road and the barn was fully engulfed by the time they arrived.

Mapleton firefighters also responded and joined efforts to protect nearby buildings, get the fire controlled and deal with concerns related to a gas line.

The two-storey barn was empty at the time, said Richardson, with a delivery of birds expected on Jan. 10.
