Police arson investigators are probing a two-alarm fire that broke out in an agricultural silo near Ashton Monday.


The Ottawa Police Services unit reported that the fire is suspicious.


Firefighters got multiple 911 calls reporting the structure at 1525 Ashton Station Rd. was in flames, Ottawa Fire Services said at 6 a.m. Monday as they were still fighting the flames.


Spotting smoke as they traveled to the scene, crews from Station 46 had declared a working fire and broadcast a second alarm soon after.


The structure, which partially collapsed, was unoccupied and no one was hurt.


District 8 Chief Todd Horricks captured dramatic video of the structure in flames from top to bottom and billowing thick black smoke. He thanked the Carleton Place-based Ocean Wave Fire Company and Beckwith Fire Department for pitching in.
