The investigation continues after a massive structure fire at the Woodstock Fairgrounds.

Fire crews were called shortly before 7:00 p.m. Tuesday to a barn engulfed in flames.

That historic barn was destroyed with damage also done to surrounding buildings.

The fire marks a major blow to The Woodstock Agricultural Society.

Woodstock Police say a 46-year-old man has been charged with arson in connection with the investigation. He is also facing an arson charge in connection with a weekend fire in the Bay Street area of the city. 

The Ontario Fire Marshal has been called into investigate both fires.
