willaston stable fire 2

A 30-year-old man suffered minor burns to his legs and smoke inhalation tackling a blaze which ripped through a barn in Willaston, Nantwich.

The fire broke out in the early hours at about 4am today (November 3) at a property on Newcastle Road, Willaston.

The man was injured as he attempted to deal with the fire when it first broke out, and was taken to hospital by paramedics.

Two fire engines from Nantwich and Crewe were called out to the scene.

They found one end of the stable well alight and used two hose reels and two breathing apparatus to tackle it.

The crew inspected the other stables to check for fire spread and any animals that might have been present.

They brought the fire under control, which not only involved the stable itself but also a considerable amount of hay.

Crews turned over the hay using stack drags to damp down, and ensured there was no chance of re-ignition by using a thermal imaging camera.

They were doing this for just over two hours.
