Police probe deliberate fire

POLICE have launched an enquiry into what is being described as an incident of wilful fireraising.

It follows a blaze at a farm near Greenlaw on the morning of Sunday, October 14.

Fire crews were alerted at around 7.10am when a number of straw bales were discovered burning in a field about three miles from the village, close to the A697.

All the bales were subsequently destroyed in the fire which police say was started deliberately.

A spokesman commented: “We are appealing for any person with any information to contact us through the police station at Duns.”
