Popular CB store destroyed by flames

Flames destroyed a popular farm store in Cape Breton early yesterday morning.

The store at Eyking Farms in Millville was reported around 2:30am by a passerby. The store is a total loss. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Nobody was hurt.

The store and processing facility was attached to several greenhouses, two of which were also damaged. Large oil and propane tanks inside and outside the building fueled the flames and a lack of water hindered the fire fighting efforts.
