Very early yesterday morning (0300hrs), the fire service were called out to a fire at Chowle Farm. The old farmhouse, the B&B, was on fire. By 0330, there were five appliances present at the incident. 2 from OFRS, 2 from Dorset and Wiltshire plus an aerial appliances (the firefighters on this piece of equipment had come directly from the major incident at “Ocado” in Hampshire so had already been on duty for some 24hrs). Initially, the appliances had to park on the A420 which caused traffic problems. Once the incident was under control the appliances were able to go onsite – which relieved the traffic problems.
