For the second time this month, there’s been a barn fire outside the GTA, and as a result, more horses have died.
Twelve horses perished in the barn at a private barn in Mount Forest, near Guelph, late Thursday night.
It’s believed a couple of horses were able to escape the flames, and one person was taken to hospital with smoke inhalation.
Investigators from the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office will be on site Friday morning, trying to determine how the fire started.
Forty-three standard-bred horses died early this month in a barn fire in Puslinch.
