Fire at farm near Ross-on-Wye

Firefighters from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service were called to a fire at a farm in Baysham, Ross-on-Wye, at around 10.45pm last night (Wednesday 16 June).

Two pumps and a water carrier from Ross-on-Wye attended along with a specialist crew from Whitchurch who used foam to put out the fire, as it involved up to 100 tonnes of agricultural waste and a large quantity of tyres. Machinery at the farm was also used to turn over the waste and help dampen down the fire.

The Environment Agency was also alerted.

The fire was fully extinguished by 1am this morning (Thursday 17 June).
