Eighty cows perished after a fire destroyed three barns, including one more than a century old, on a family farm on Prince of Wales Drive this afternoon.
The barns sit on a farm in the 2600 block of Prince of Wales Drive, north of Fallowfield Road.
The fire broke out around 1 p.m
About a dozen cattle survived the flames as they were in the field.
According to fire officials, the family is looking for help to house them.
No one was injured
There are no hydrants in that rural area of Ottawa, so water to battle the blaze had to be brought in by tanker trucks
