Napanee wildlife rescue centre appeals for help after fire destroys barn

By Blair Crawford, Ottawa Citizen, January 5, 2018

A Napanee wildlife rescue centre suffered “a devastating blow” Friday when fire destroyed a barn that held much of the straw and hay the centre needs for feed and bedding for its animals.

The fire at Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre broke out at about 11 a.m. and destroyed a barn on the property, about five kilometres west of Napanee. Only a few animals were in the barn and all but one pig and a rabbit were able to escape safely. The fire was extinguished at around 4 p.m. with the help of volunteer firefighters from Napanee and Deseronto.
