A derelict building fire spread to two tractors after being fanned by the strong easterly winds.

Critical Control received the first 999 call a 2am today, stating that a derelict building could be seen on fire from the A39 at Valley Truckle near Camelford.

One fire engine and the light rescue four-wheeled drive pump (L4P) from Delabole was sent initially, along with a crew from Wadebridge and a wholetime officer.

Within minutes of arriving there was a call for back-up from the crews at the scene, with a further engine from Bodmin sent.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Firefighters confirmed two tractors were well alight, surrounded by large quantities of wood and pallets.

"The fire was approximately ten metres by three metres, and 2.4 metres high."

Firefighters in breathing equipment used two hose reel jets and a main jet to begin fighting back the flames.

Just after 2.30am a water carrier from Liskeard was sent for, along with a crew from Launceston to provide extra support.

At 3am firefighters were said to be trying to stop the blaze from spreading further to an adjacent barn.

The fire service spokesperson added the strong winds were fanning the fire and a water shuttle had been set up.

No further updates have been given by the fire service over what time the fire was eventually put out.
