Barn fire in Ilminster started by campervans on fire

Date of alert:

Crime Ref:

Force:

Thursday, 4 August 2022

Avon & Somerset Constabulary

Two campervans caught light and the fire spread to a barn in Ilminster yesterday morning (Wednesday).

Fire control received multiple reports of the campervans on fire and so mobilised two fire engines from Ilminster and Chard along with a water bowser from Yeovil at just before midday.

When they arrived, firefighters got to work on the burning campervans which were well alight.

However, the fire spread to a nearby barn so more crews were needed.
