Firefighters from Duns, Dunbar, Eyemouth, East Linton, North Berwick, Tranent and Haddington were called to a barn on fire at Drakemyre Farm near Duns on Friday evening.

On arrival they discovered 150 tonnes of baled straw alight in a barn. Crews worked to secure an adequate water supply in order to attack the fire and had to deal with the additional hazards associated with the presence of asbestos. They worked with two ground monitors and one line of hose.
