Firefighters from across Suffolk have been called to a fire in a barn on a farm near Haverhill.
Crews from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to the scene at 4.33pm today, at Great Wilsey Farm in Haverhill Road, Little Wratting.
A total of 12 crews of firefighters were been dispatched from Cambridge, Woodbridge, Sudbury, Long Melford, Clare, Haverhill, Wickhambrook, Bury St Edmunds Ixworth, Brandon and Newmarket — 16 were originally called.
One support vehicle and a water carrier are also currently on scene.
A spokesman for the fire service confirmed the fire measured 30m by 15m and that there were no reports of any casualties or people involved.
He added: "A large barn has been completely involved in the fire, but crews have managed to surround it and got it under control to prevent spreading to any of the other buildings."
Police officers have been told they're not needed to attend as the fire is down a small, isolated country lane and poses no danger off the property.
