Firefighters tackle barn blaze at Newbiggin
FIREFIGHTERS spent three hours tackling a blaze which ripped through two barns at Newbiggin on Friday night.
Two crews from Penrith were called to Prospect House and found both two-storey structures well alight.
The scale of the fire prompted the officer in charge at the scene to call for two further engines - one from Shap and another from Carlisle.
Firefighters used hose reels, main jets and a foam branch to tackle the flames.
A water bowser and Environmental Protection Unit were also called in.
The barns contained a number of tractors, oil drums and petrol.
