Around 10pm, reports came in of a barn fire came in. Report’s said that it was off of Randall Road, just past the Algonquin Commons.
When we arrived on scene, there were around 4 fire trucks, 3 ambulances, and 2 police cars, all of them from Algonquin/LITH. The barn, which the home in front of it has been bordered up for some time now, was completely engulfed in flames.
What we know of as of now, is that the firefighters were down by the barn, but they didn’t seem to be trying to stop the flames. It seems that the firefighters were just making sure that the surrounding area did not catch on fire as well.
We asked the Algonquin police officer’s for any comment, to which they replied that they didn’t know any details at which they could release yet.
More on this as it comes.
