200 Cows Were Lost In A Dairy Farm Fire In Mirabel

In the late hours of Sunday evening, a huge fire consumed a dairy farm in Mirabel and around 200 cows perished in the blaze.

According to information from the Service de la sécurité incendie Mirabel, 37 firefighters from Mirabel, Lachute, and Saint-André d'Argenteuil were dispatched at around 11 p.m. on Sunday to battle the blaze.

"When we arrived on the scene, the fire had spread to almost the entire building," Joël Laviolette, director of the Mirabel fire department, told MTL blog.

"The dairy cows and barn are probably a total loss."

According to a report from Radio-Canada, this represents a loss of about $4 million.

There were no human casualties.
