A FIRE gripped a Herefordshire farm building in the early hours of the morning as fire crews were called out.

Fire crews from Hereford, plus a water carrier from Leominster, were called to Moreton-on-Lugg shortly after 2am this morning (May 3).

The fire involved an agricultural building, with a large bonfire around four metres by four metres in size.


"Two Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews from Hereford Fire Station and the Leominster water carrier were called at 2.04am on May 3 to an agricultural building fire in Moreton-on-Lugg," said a spokesperson for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service.

"There was a large bonfire, around four metres by four metres, at the rear of the property and crews dampened down the area using a hosereel jet. The bonfire was reduced in size.

"Nearby propane cylinders were checked using thermal imaging."

The spokesperson added that no one was injured in the fire. No other emergency services attended, with firefighters leaving the scene at 3.15am.
