Several fire crews were called to a large barn fire between York and Malton last night (Tuesday).
Two fire appliances from Malton, one from York and the water bowser from Tadcaster were called to a farm in Leppington at 7.02pm.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Upon arrival crews were confronted with a barn measuring approx 40m by 20m well alight containing around 2,000 bales of straw.
“The farmer moved cattle from nearby sheds in case of fire spread and fire crews quickly established a water supply and began tackling the fire.
“As of 11.15pm the incident has been scaled down to just one appliance which will remain on scene through the night.”
