Fire destroys Nova Scotia slaughterhouse; cause undetermined

Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a major fire that destroyed a slaughterhouse in Upper Rawdon, Nova Scotia, Canada, that just received its red meat processing license five months ago.

More than 100 firefighters from four Nova Scotia counties needed four hours to take control of the fire at Scotia Meat Market Ltd. Sunday night, according to several local media reports. No injuries were reported and no animals were killed by the blaze at the four-building facility that was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, according to CTV News. The family-owned company had reopened under new ownership more than two years ago and recently launched a storefront retail business in the Halifax area, the report added.

The son of the slaughterhouse owner told CTV News the family is considering its options as to whether the plant will be rebuilt. The cause of the blaze continues to be investigated by local officials.
