ANTIGONISH, N.S. - A fire that destroyed three Nova Scotia government snow plows at a depot in Antigonish has been declared accidental.

The RCMP says an investigation shows there is nothing suspicious about Tuesday's fire at the Department of Transportation garage.

The government announced Tuesday that it was sending replacement equipment from other parts of the province to help clear roads in the area.

Nobody was harmed in the fire but the garage housing the equipment was destroyed.

Witnesses say they saw grey smoke coming from the building on Post Road just after 12:30 p.m., but the blaze was extinguished before 2 p.m.
