A wooden bridge on the Peanut Line trail, east of 4th Line Road in South Glengarry, has been destroyed by fire.
When firefighters arrived Monday the former railway bridge structure on the recreational trail was fully engulfed in fire. No bystanders were found in the area at the time of response. The wooden portion of the span is a complete loss and the steel superstructure will be assessed for stability.
The trail will now be closed from 4th Line Road east to the Québec border. Further details and/or plans to re-open that portion of the trail will be made available after the bridge structure is reviewed.
