Hay bales burn in barn fire

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

SMOKE from a barn fire in North­wood Hills was seen ris­ing into the air on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, and fire­fight­ers spent five hours bat­tling the flames.

An out­build­ing in Joel Street was se­ri­ously dam­aged, along with three trac­tors. This photo, shared by Lon­don Fire Brigade, was taken in the farm­yard with burn­ing bales of straw and hay.

Roads were closed as the crews tack­led the fire, which started just be­fore 5am.

The fire­fight­ers were at the scene un­til around 10am. Crews from Ruislip, Har­row and Northolt fire sta­tions all at­tended in four fire en­gines.

A to­tal of 25 fire­fight­ers were needed at the scene to bring the blaze un­der con­trol.

Roads were re­opened after crews left the farm just after 10am.
