Three in hospital after Threemilestone barn fire

Three people have been taken to hospital after a fire at a barn in Cornwall.

Two men and a woman had been cooking at the derelict structure at Maiden Green in Threemilestone, near Truro, on Sunday night, and it "got out of hand", Devon and Cornwall Police said.

The barn was described as well alight when fire crews from Truro and Redruth arrived at about 22:40 GMT on Sunday.

The three underwent a check-up at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.

The incident was not being treated as arson, police said.
