A barn and garage in central Lambton were destroyed by fire Tuesday afternoon.

The call to the 1900-block of Downie Rd. came in around 2pm.

Alvinston Chief Ron McCabe says Inwood, Watford and Dawn Euphemia volunteer firefighters were called for mutual aid.

Because of gusty winds, they had to concentrate on saving a nearby house after flames spread to a nearby corn field.

Chief McCabe says no livestock were lost but wagons, trailers, trucks and cars inside the buildings were destroyed.

A cause has yet to be determined.
