FIREFIGHTERS dealt with a precarious blaze which damaged three vehicles near Truro last night. 

Two fire crews from Truro Community Fire Station and one from Tolvaddon Community Fire Station tackled a lorry fire at Tregavethan, near Penstraze.

The lorry was next to a farm shed, but firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the building using breathing apparatus, two jets and a hosereel.

Two cars were also damaged by fire during the incident, which started around 10pm. 

The fire was extinguished by 11.15pm and the firefighters left the scene at 15 minutes later.

The cause of the fire is not being treated as suspicious.
