Several farm animals were killed in a barn fire in North Gower Saturday night. Emergency responders were called just before 10:30pm to 6255 Prince Of Wales Drive north of Roger Stevens. According to Mark Messier of Ottawa Fire most of the main barn was in flames when crews arrived. A second smaller barn also caught fire. No people were injured in the blaze, but five cows, three horses and several chickens were killed. Prince of Wales was closed in both directions for several hours through the night but has now reopened. Damage is estimated at half a million dollars.
