Firefighters dealing with barn fire in Woolwich (update)

It's on New Jerusalem Road

Emergency crews are on scene of a large barn fire on New Jerusalem Road.

It happened Friday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. 

Dennis Aldous is Deputy Fire Chief with the Township of Woolwich. 

He told 570 NEWS that the barn's owner, and all of their family members have been accounted for and were not injured.

However, a few calves and cattle in the barn did not make it out. 

A firefighter was taken to hospital, and Aldous said he believes it's related to heat exhaustion. 

New Jerusalem Road is closed between Sawmill and Northfield. It's not expected to reopen until late Friday night.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
