Barn Fire in West Ghent, animals perish

Fire broke out this morning in a barn at 1422 Route 66 in Ghent. Over half a dozen fire companies with tankers were called to the scene just after 7am

Firefighters had to work in sub-zero temperatures.

We've learned that animals were in the barn, and many have died.

The cause may be due to a heat lamp, but is under investigation.

Route 66 was closed between Orchard Road and George Road.
