Crews from several fire stations were called to a house fire at a Perth County dairy farm late Wednesday morning.

The fire, at a home on Perth Road 147 south of Listowel and east of Atwood, continued to burn into the afternoon hours.

By 1:30 p.m., there were more than 20 firefighters on-site, attempting to extinguish flames coming from the roof of the home and trucking in water from off-site.

A barn elsewhere on the property had not been damaged.
