Fire control received numerous calls to a barn on fire at the above location.

Control immediately mobilised 3 pumping appliances alongside a water carrier.

Within minutes the incident commander confirmed that 1 barn was well alight and requested a further 3 fire appliances for additional personnel and water, and a further 4 x 4 for assistance moving kit around the fire ground.

Due to an increase in smoke into the atmosphere the incident commander asked control to advise the public within the village to keep windows and doors closed.

Crews are at work extinguishing the fire using 2 breathing apparatus, 5 45mm jets and 1 ground monitor. Crews have established water source from a nearby pond.  Western power attended and isolated all power to the barn.  

The fire is now extinguished and all crews have left the scene.  The building sustained 90% damage from fire.  The cause has been established as accidental.
