Yesterday (4th January), six fire engines along with supporting appliances attended a fire off the main road through Temple Sowerby to a fire involving a large barn which contained straw, hay and farm machinery.
A spokesperson from Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service said:
"Crews assisted with moving 160 cows to a place of safety. 100 tonnes of hay and straw were destroyed by fire but adjacent farm buildings were protected.
"Whilst dealing with the incident a young cow was also rescued after falling down a slurry inlet.
"Firefighters used a water bowser, four main jets, a hose reel and two breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire and remained in attendance for over six hours."
