Cattle rescued as firefighters tackle large barn fire on the Quantocks

CREWS from 13 fire stations battled a massive barn fire on the Quantock Hills overnight.

Firefighters were sent to Stringston – close to Holford, Kilve and Stogursey – shortly after 8.30pm yesterday where 300 hay bales were well alight.

All cattle had been rescued and removed from the building to a safe location.

The operation was scaled back after 1am, although crews continued to work through the night on a ‘watching brief’.
