FIRE crews are tackling a blaze at a barn on land near Clock Face Road.

Fire crews have been called to a large fire at a barn on Joy Lane, off Clock Face Road. 

Five fire engines and a high volume pump initially attended after crews were alerted at 10.29pm and on scene at 10.46pm.

Crews arrived to find a barn around 20 x 30 ft in size well alight, with multiple vehicles inside.

They began to fight the fire with a hose reel jet and a main branch hose while establishing a water supply and requested a High Volume Pump (HVP) to secure effective water supply.

The incident has been sectorised and water supplies have now been established from the main road.

Firefighters have been tackling the fire externally wearing breathing apparatus where required with high pressure hose reels.

However water pressure remained low so firefighters requested further pumps to ensure water supply increasing attendance to eight fire engines.

The incident is ongoing.  

 An update at 8.30am this morning said: "Firefighters have continued fighting the fire, believed to involve up to 20 vehicles in the barn throughout the night.

"The incident has now been scaled down significantly but firefighters remain on scene to ensure it is fully extinguished."
