Barn fire in Ilminster started by campervans on fire
Date of alert:
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.
