A fire, involving hay, farm machinery and agricultural equipment in a number of sheds, broke out on a farm in Co. Antrim last night (Sunday, January 19th).

Speaking about the incident at Ballyclough Roads, in Bushmills, a spokesperson for NIFRS, said: “Crews are currently attending an incident at Ballyclogh Road near Bushmills.”

“This is a well-developed fire involving hay, farm machinery and agricultural equipment in a number of farm sheds.”

“There are approximately 50 personnel attending the fire, as well as support from specialist appliances.”

“We would request members of the public to avoid the surrounding area due to the movement of fire appliances and the need to close off the Ballyclogh Road adjacent to the incident to allow water supplies to be secured.”

“Currently, there are no reports of injuries and farm animals have been moved out of the immediate risk area.” the spokesperson concluded.

No further update is available at present.
