Two people were treated at the scene of a blaze in a farm building in Hatherton, near Nantwich.

The fire involved bales of hay stored in the building off Hunsterson Road, Hatherton, at around 2pm yesterday (July 27).

Fire crews from Audlem and Nantwich used hose reel jets and breathing apparatus to fight the flames.

Once the fire was out, crews used two breathing apparatus and a stack drag to turn over the hay while a hose reel jet was used to damp down the area.

Cheshire fire and rescue said: “Two casualties were given oxygen therapy and assessed by paramedics as a precaution.

“Crews remained on the scene damping down and coordinating the removal of the hay bales with the farmer.

“They left the scene shortly before 5pm.”
