ditch - Cheshire Fire and Rescue from Audlem Fire Station displayed a full size fire appliance

Fire crews across Cheshire tackled a large barn blaze at a farm in Tarporley last night.

The fire broke out at around 10.40pm on Hickhurst Lane, Tarporley.

Cheshire Fire Service sent two fire engines from Crewe, two from Winsford, one from Tarporley, two from Northwich, the aerial ladder platform from Chester and a supporting pump, one engine from Nantwich and one from Audlem all attended.

It was in a large brick barn which was well alight and the fire was spreading to an adjacent domestic property.

Crews, four wearing breathing apparatus, used two ground monitors, two hose reel jets, a main jet and the aerial appliance to fight the fire.

The main fire was extinguished by 1.30am and crews spent the night monitoring the site with thermal imaging cameras and dampening down any hot spots.

It’s thought there are no injuries.
