The fire service was called out to the farm at the Southern end of Baghill Lane, near the crossroads with Station Road and Thame Road, on Tuesday morning 21st February, when smoke was seen emerging from a very large horse box parked in the farm yard.

The vehicle had been connected overnight to an electrical supply in order to recharge onboard batteries, and this was likely to be related to the cause of the fire.

A total of five fire tenders responded very quickly to the emergency call, with fire services from both Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire in attendance.

The priority of the fire crew was to ensure that the vehicle fire did not transfer to the farm house, especially given that a timber structure on the side of the property stood very close to the front of the vehicle.

Thankfully, the fire was extinguished very efficiently by the fire service although, as the images show, the vehicle was very seriously damaged. (Click on any image to see an enlarged view).

Fire crew spent time afterwards damping down the vehicle while wearing breathing apparatus, to eliminate any risk of further ignition

We are pleased to report that residents of the farm, Mr C Parker and his mother, were unharmed and were doubtless very grateful for the speedy response of the fire service.
