A large fire that engulfed a tractor on a Cornish farm spread to a house, the trailer and a garage, causing severe structural damage.

The fire broke out on a farm in Nancledra near St Ives on Saturday, November 20.

Crews from Penzance and St Ives, together with a wholetime officer, were mobilised at 12.01pm.

On arrival at the farm they found that the tractor fire had already spread to the house, just a few metres away, as well as a trailer and garage.

Using breathing apparatus, hose reel jets and a main jet, firefighters put the fire out, but not before severe damage had been done to the structure of the outbuilding.
