Barn fire, Storridge

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) was called to reports of a fire at a farm off the A4103 in Storridge at around 12.20am this morning, and two fire engines from Malvern and the water carrier from Evesham attended.

Crews found an open-sided barn containing hay and straw on fire, which they extinguished using two covering jets. The barn itself and approximately 250 bales of hay and straw stored inside it were destroyed during the fire.

Station Commander Adrian Thompson from HWFRS said: “While the barn and its contents were completely destroyed, there was no spread of fire to nearby buildings, nor any injuries.”

He confirmed that part of the road had to be closed during the incident and that fire officers were working with the police to establish exactly how the fire started.
