Investigators are focusing on the electrical and propane systems as they continue to look for a cause into the barn fire that killed more than 40 racehorses at Classy Lane Stables.
Wayne Romaine, field investigations supervisor with the Ontario Fire Marshall’s Office, said the initial investigation was taking place in the east end of the 11,500 square-foot barn where the offices were located. The fire at the Concession 1 facility was discovered late Monday night and was not extinguished until Tuesday by firefighters from five local departments.
“We’re in the process of investigating the propane delivery system as well as some of the electrical components,” Romaine said at the scene Wednesday.
