There has been another deadly fire at a duck farm in the Eastern Townships

A barn housing 4,000 ducks burned down early Thursday morning in Saint Camille, about 30 km northeast of Sherbrooke.

Firefighters evacuated six residences in the area because of the risk of an explosion from multiple propane tanks on the farm.

The farm was raising fowl for Brome Lake Duck Company.

On Jan. 1, a farm in nearby Racine burned to the ground, killing 50,000 ducks.
