Wellington North Fire Services were called to the hay drying operation between Line 10 and Line 8 just after 6:00pm Monday night. Fire Chef Dave Guilbault told The River “it’s one of the largest fires I’ve experienced in my career”. Mount Forest and Arthur stations were assisted by crews from Shelburne, Dundalk and Grand Valley. They will remain on scene today as the rubble continues to smolder. There were no injuries reported and the Ontario Fire Marshall has been called in to investigate.
