Fire destroyed four barns at Pennwood Farms near Steinbach, Man., Monday, claiming 800 of the dairy farm’s 1,000 cattle.

Crews were milking at the time the fire broke out. Three barns were fully engulfed when firemen arrived and a fourth burned before the six-departments brought the flames under control.

The farm was on the verge of expanding to 1,700 head.
