A large fire on the outskirts of Taunton last night (1st June 2020) needed 6 fire engines to keep the blaze under control in Poundisford. The fire started just before 8:45 pm and the barn, which was completely destroyed contained 20 vehicles but luckily, no one was injured.

One fire appliance from Taunton was initially sent to deal with a small fire that was out of control. On arrival, crews requested a further 5 appliances as the barn was well alight.
The second and third from Taunton, Cullompton, two from Wellington, Bridgwater, the water carrier from Bridgwater, the incident command unit from Wiveliscombe and the welfare unit from Crediton were sent.
This was a single storey barn 40m by 8m constructed of timber and sheet asbestos containing vehicles.
