The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating after a barn fire in Erin claimed the lives of six horses.
Earlier reports named seven horses, but OPP have reduced the number to six.
Damage estimates are now pegged at over $1 million.
Firefighters were called to the barn fire Wednesday around 2:30 a.m. on Wellington Road 23, north of the Village of Erin.
The barn was engulfed in flames when emergency crews arrived.
One person escaped the fire without injury.
