Residents Told to Shut their Windows After Tolpuddle Barn Fire

Barn Fire

8:42am 27th August 2013

Fire fighters have spent the night at the scene of a huge barn fire just off the A35 at Tolpuddle.

It broke out at around lunchtime yesterday (Monday 26th August) with 5 crews sent to tackle the blaze.

Local residents were warned to close their windows and doors because of an asbestos risk from the barns roof.

The single storey structure was completely destroyed in the fire. Dorset Fire and Rescue say it's still unclear how the blaze started.
