Firefighters were called to the scene of a fire involving two agricultural buildings this evening.

On arrival crews reported that a barn and a stables measuring around ten square metres, which are both used to store tools and machinery, were completely alight.

No animals were being kept inside the buildings at the time of the fire.

Firefighters isolated the electricity supply before completely extinguishing the fire by 7.42pm.

Crews revisited the site later in the evening to ensure the site remained cool and that there was no risk of reignition.

Both buildings have been destroyed by the fire. An investigation found that the fire was caused accidentally by faulty electrical wiring.
