Fires of Lanark County 2002

Fires of Lanark County 2002

I have not going to add anything else other than I found a complete record of the local barn fires of 2002– and just documenting it. Stories have been told already. Good or bad, it happened 19 years ago and it is history.

My family was also affected- my kids were going to all the fires the same as everyone else and they were filming them. Pretty soon gossip began to falsely spread that my sons had something to do with it and the OPP came and took their camera away and investigated. Of course they had nothing to do with it. But I will remember how vicious gossip got around the area for everyone, and how many folks were affected in one way or another. So all I am doing here is listing the properties.

“Be Impeccable With your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.”

Amen to that!!!

The torching at the Lowry farm was the seventh and most deadly strike for the barn-burning ghost of Lanark County.

Standing in his hay field just down the road from home, Ed Lowry looked north and saw black smoke. A minute later his pager beeped, calling the volunteer firefighter to an address he knew well. He raced back in his pickup, but the flames, feasting on stacks of hay and straw, had spread too fast. He lost his barn and stable. Inside, 65 pigs and 15 calves burned alive.
