Anyone passing by the Hespeler Street and Loewen Boulevard intersection last night may have noticed a large barn fire.

The Steinbach Fire Department was approached by the Steinbach Hatchery to burn down the barn, and they used it as a training exercise.

They spent the morning prepping it so they could safely burn it down.

Here are some photos of the fire. The last five were taken by Lois Fast.
