Fire control was flooded with calls over a barn blaze at the rear of a Chelmsford pub.

Emergency assistance was required at the Fox and Raven pub in Barnes Mill Road at around 12.40pm.

On arrival, the incident commander reported that the blaze involved a barn measuring some 25m by five metres and was “well alight”.

The fire was under control by 1.05pm with crews using two hose reels and a main jet.

By 1.50pm the blaze was out with firefighters checking for hot spots.

A joint police and fire service investigation will now be carried out to establish the cause.

In a separate incident at 2.30pm, firefighters were called to a blaze involving a large stack of wood in Clay Lane, St Osyths.

One crew was initially sent to the scene, but on arrival the incident commander requested a second appliance for extra water supplies.

At around 2.55pm crews were using a hose reel and one main jet to extinguish the fire. Just over 20 minutes later crews had the fire surrounded and were making and had secured a water supply.

The incidents occurred on a day of industrial action over the fire union’s pensions row with the Government.
