FIREFIGHTERS have tackled a blaze in a straw-filled lorry container in Lostwithiel.

Fire engines from Bodmin and Lostwithiel were scrambled to Sweetshouse at about 3pm yesterday after reports that a 25ft by 8ft lorry container used to store straw was alight.

On arrival, the fire was well underway.

Crew members used breathing equipment and two jet hoses to douse the flames.

Afterwards, they spent time damping down the area.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown.
