Roads closed near Wimborne after barn fire

Bournemouth Echo: Roads closed near Wimborne after barn fire Roads closed near Wimborne after barn fire

ROADS are closed around Wimborne are set to reopen last today after a barn fire where 200 tonnes of straw was destroyed.

Firefighters were called to the scene, just South of Creech Hill Wood, at 2am on Friday and found a large barn fire but decided it was safe to burn out.

Two pumps stayed at the scene between Cranborne Road and Wimborne St Giles Road, until 5.30am and then a few firefighters were retained to continue to monitor the fire.

The roads are due to reopen later today, police said, once BT has fixed phone cables that were damaged.

Motorists are advised to avoid the road blocks and find an alternative route.

I think a map showing the affected area & alternative routes would have been more useful rather than a few 'stock' photos?

It's "Cranborne" not cranbourne. I know that the echo journalists aren't the best but anyone with half a brain can Google that and get it right. Thank you to the retained firefighters as well. Luckily some of them actually want to do a job

My sympathy to the owner of the barn as this is the second incident in recent months . I've just driven past and one now has to drive through Cranborne to continue on B3081 .

What a pathetic attempt to have a go at full-time firefighters. Maybe you should check and see how many days during the working week that you actually have a crew manning you're retained stations at Cranborne and it's neighbour Verwood. Most of the time there is no crew at either of these stations and a call in these areas is usually covered by Ferndowns full-time crew. Do some research and actually know what you are talking about before you try and have a pop with your throw away comments.
