Two fire appliances crewed by retained firefighters from Sherborne responded to the scene . Firefighters requested assistance of an off road light vehicle due to difficult access and a Land Rover from Maiden Newton fire station was sent.

Main Lines and hose reel jets were used to extinguish the fire.  75% of the caravan was destroyed and part of the gable end of the stable block was affected.
 
The cause was believed to be deliberate and Police are investigating the incident.
