Firefighters were called to reports of a fire at an agricultural building in the early hours of this morning.

On arrival crews reported that a barn was 100% alight and immediately requested further support to contain the fire, in an effort to prevent it spreading to adjacent garage buildings.

The barn, which spans an area of 30 metres by 40 metres, contains various agricultural machinery and vehicles.

The fire was extinguished by 3.07am. Firefighters then continued extinguishing hotspots until 5.42am.

One crew then revisited the scene at 8am this morning, where they reported a number of small hotspots still remained.

A full investigation into the cause of the fire will now take place.
