Firefighters battled a large fire that broke out at a barn in Mississauga Wednesday evening.

Crews responded to 5576 Hurontario Street south of Matheson Boulevard around 6:15 p.m.

Peel police said no one was injured in the incident.

The cause, origin and circumstances of the fire are unknown.

The blaze was later knocked down, but crews were expected to remain on the scene to ensure that it was fully extinguished.

Roads in the area were closed due to the fire. Top Stories
