EWYAS Harold fire crew were mobilised to a tree on fire, near to a barn, at a property in Longtown.

They attended the incident at 21.30 on July 31.

On arrival they found an old oak tree with a deep seated fire in the trunk.

Using the hose reel, chimney rose and the 9mtr ladder they cut away part of the trunk to enable access and to extinguish the fire.

No persons were injured.
