Farm hit by blaze

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A FARM build­ing was left badly dam­aged af­ter a blaze ripped through it. Crews from four of the re­gion’s fire sta­tions were called out to the scene. The out­build­ing at Broom­fold Farm, at Tough, near Al­ford, caught light about 10am yes­ter­day. Grampian Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice teams from Al­ford, Kin­tore and In­verurie, as well as a wa­ter car­rier from Stone­haven, were sent to tackle the flames. The barn, used to store fire­wood, was al­most de­stroyed, with the roof and two walls col­laps­ing. In­ci­dent com­man­der Arthur Smith said: “It was a fire in an out­build­ing which was well alight by the time we ar­rived. “We con­tained it to the build­ing with­out spread to the ad­ja­cent sheds. “We used three main jets and three pump­ing ap­pli­ances. There was noth­ing in the build­ing ex­cept sticks and fire­wood.” The owner of the prop­erty Wil­liam Watt said the build­ing was derelict and noth­ing of any value was de­stroyed.
