Although the fire caused a devastating loss, the toll could have been much higher as flames razed a barn on the Leducdale Farm near Dunvegan Monday. About 100 head of cattle perished in the blaze, however, North Glengarry firefighters managed to save the nearby family home and silos. RONNA MOGELON PHOTO
