Firefighters battled a blaze at a barn in Bluntisham.

Two crews from Huntingdon and one from St Ives were called to Heath Road at 5.56am yesterday (Thursday), where they found a compost sieve on fire in an open barn. Wearing breathing apparatus they extinguished the fire using hose reels and returned to their stations by 8.30am.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
