OPP investigating Watford barn fire


Lambton OPP are looking for the public’s help after a barn fire near Watford.

Watford Fire Chief Rick Sitlington says the department was called to Confederation Line, just west of Watford after a neighbour called 9-1-1 about a large shed on fire around 2:30 am Sunday morning. About 25 firefighters from Watford and Warwick brought the fire under control in about three hours.

Sitlington says the OPP is investigating the cause of the blaze. Police are looking for dashcam footage from anyone driving in the area at the time.

Sitlington said a damage estimate has not yet been calculated.
