Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews from both Kingsland, Presteigne and Kington Fire Stations attended the blaze at Whitney-on-Wye on Sunday evening. Crews were faced with an intense fire which engulfed three outbuildings very close to houses. The fire also involved gas cylinders, petrol cans and machinery. The heat was melting the house guttering and broke windows. Four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and using two hosereels stopped the blaze reaching the houses and causing further damage while also extinguishing the fire, which was spread across the rear of three properties. 📸 HWFRS

Yesterday they helped rescue a cat from the river and today they’ve been out with their colleagues from Bromyard Fire Station helping get a horse out of a ditch he’d fallen into this morning. 32 yr old Shirenski found himself in an awkward position and was unable to get up. Great teamwork from the crews, his owners, neighbours and the vet...resulted in Shirenski getting back on to his feet after a few hours. Another wonderful rescue story from professional and dedicated firefighters who do a lot more work besides tackling fires 📷 HWFRS Leominster #herefordvoice #herefordshirenews #herefordshire
