Alnwick/Haldimand Township Fire Department were called to a fully engulfed barn fire on Grills Road at approximately 6:16 p.m. on Saturday north of Grafton.

Smoke could be seen as far as Wesleyville along Highway 401. When crews arrived the barn, which was full of hay and farm equipment, was engulfed in flames.

Numerous departments were called for assistance with supplying water and worked well into the night extinguishing the flames. A cab of a old transport truck parked behind the barn also went up in flames. Damage and cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
