FIRE crews dashed to a barn fire in Milton Lilbourne last night.

Both Marlborough fire engines, along with Pewsey's water carrier and pump, went to the farm, in The Street, just before 10pm.

A four bay Dutch barn was well alight, with 60 tonnes of hay being allowed to burn out under control, while two sows and 18 piglets were brought to safety.

The two Marlborough crews left before midnight, but Pewsey firefighters are still at the scene this morning.

An investigation into what caused the fire has begun.
