It is with great sadness we share the news that there has been a fire at Ferme Jacobs. The fire occurred at a farm they acquired last autumn and not at the home farm. Unfortunately, all the animals died in the fire.
Several fire departments are on the scene, including Pont-Rouge, Cap Santé and Deschambault-Grondines.
The Station Road is currently closed to traffic due to the fire and the transport of water by the trucks.
Strong winds were probably a contributing factor to the spread of flames throughout the building.
According to a neighbor of the area, about 250 cows were in the building.
Two excavators were required on site to assist firefighters
