A vacant chicken barn was destroyed by an explosion Friday morning near Morris.
The unoccupied barn located about eight kilometres west of the town exploded just before 10:30 a.m.
RCMP say the 5,000 square-foot building was heated by propane and had electrical service at the time.
There were no chickens in the barn, and no injuries were reported.
Damage is estimated at about $20,000 and the cause of the explosion remains under investigation. However, RCMP don’t believe it’s suspicious in nature.
