Fire crews tackled a massive blaze in a 30m by 10m farm storage building for more than 17 hours at the weekend.

Two crews from Spalding were called to Pecks Drove West in Claylake, Spalding, at 3.17pm on Saturday.

A further crew from Donington was called in to assist.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said firefighters left the scene at 9.38am on Sunday, but further checks were made early todayly today (Monday) to make sure there were no pockets of fire left.

He said a nearby bonfire set the building alight so the cause was accidental.

The building and contents were severely damaged, but there’s no estimate on the value of property destroyed. SG070315-161TW
