TWO cars were destroyed by fire in a Herefordshire village.

In a post on its Facebook page, Ewyas Harold Fire Station said that they were called out to a well-established garage fire.

"Upon arrival, the building was well ablaze along with two vehicles and surrounding foliage," reads the post.

"Crews tackled the fire with the use of foam and water along with assistance from Hereford fire station and Leominster water carrier.


"Crews continued to reduce fire and dampen down for several hours after the call out to ensure that there was no chance or re-ignition.

"No persons harmed."

A spokesperson for Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said the fire happened at an agricultural building on Ewyas Harold Common shortly after 1.25pm yesterday (Sunday). 

"The fire involved a building measuring 4m by 5m containing two cars," he said,

"The fire was fought using two hose reel jets with foam also used. A thermal imaging camera was also used to check for hot spots.

"There were no casualties. Police also attended. The incident was marked as pending closure at 4.27pm."
