firefighter at incidentTwo fire engines from Clevedon Fire Station were called to deal with a fire in a barn containing approximately 100 tonnes of hay.

When crews arrived they found the barn measuring around 120 metres by 40 metres alight. Approximately 30 tonnes of hay and straw was burning.

A farmer worked alongside crews to remove some of the hay while firefighters used two high pressure hose reels to extinguish the fire. The cause is thought to be accidental.
