Barn catches fire at sawmill in Cornwall

Date of alert:

Crime Ref:


Devon & Cornwall Police

A barn caught fire at a Cornish sawmill last night (Wednesday, May 18).

At 8.23pm fire control was called with reports of a fire at a sawmill in Cardinham near Bodmin.

Initially two appliances were sent from Bodmin.

Firefighters found a large barn burning fiercely and so additional crews from Lostwithiel and Liskeard were mobilised.

Since the barn sits about a mile east of Bodmin parkway on the A38, the fire service shared a warning to motorists, saying: "Please approach the area with caution as there may be smoke on the carriageway."
