An investigation is continuing into the cause of a large barn fire.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service sent six crews to tackle a barn blaze in Forestry Road, Llanferres, just before 6.30pm on Tuesday.

The crews - two from Deeside and one each from Ruthin, Buckley, Mold and Denbigh - used four hose reel jets and a main jet to bring the fire under control by about 9pm.

A spokesman for the fire and rescue service told the Leader an investigation officer attended the scene on Wednesday morning along with two crews.

The cause of the blaze is yet to be determined but 100 per cent fire damage was caused to two barns while heat and smoulder damage was caused to three adjacent barns.

A nearby vehicle and agricultural machinery contained in the barns also received 100 per cent fire damage.

Paul Scott, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service incident commander, said the blaze was 'well developed' when firefighters arrived.

He said: "The crews have worked extremely hard and I am very proud of the way they have worked on a warm night to get a water supply to this to prevent any further spread of fire."

He explained the crews had to 'shuttle' water from a nearby village in order to battle the blaze.
