WINNIPEG – A fire in Kola, Man., Tuesday night destroyed a huge pig barn and killed 1,500 animals, fire RCMP say.

The Wallace District Fire Department sent 30 firefighters from three stations to the fire at about 10 p.m. to find the barn in flames. Firefighters from Maryfield, Sask., joined their peers from Virden and Elkhorn.

It took firefighters about half an hour to respond because of Tuesday night’s snowstorm, Chief Brad Yochim said in an email. The water supply was also a distance away, so firefighters weren’t able to save the building or the animals inside.

Kola is 300 kilometres west of Winnipeg near the Saskatchewan border.

No people were injured, but the owner of the barn said approximately 1,500 sows were destroyed, RCMP said.

The cause of the fire does not appear suspicious, police said, but the Office of the Fire Commissioner is investigating.
