Crews tackle barn fire

Hunstrete, Pensford

Firefighters dealt with a large barn fire.

On arrival crews found the steel construction measuring approximately 30 metres by 10 metres well alight. It’s thought it contained around 130 tonnes of hay.

Crews used two 45mm jets to bring the fire under control and they used a covering jet to protect a tank containing approximately 1,000 litres of red diesel.

It’s thought the fire was started deliberately.
