Arson confirmed at Bates Barn

The fire that destroyed a popular wedding venue in Kings County has been confirmed as arson.

Hampton RCMP are asking anyone who has information on the fire or who saw a car leaving the area the night of February 14th to call them.

The 70 year old barn will be rebuilt…but the owners say they likely won’t be able to get it done in time for this spring and summer’s wedding season.
