Firefighters tackle Duns farm blaze

Fire crews have worked through the night to prevent a blaze destroying a farm.

Two crews were initially called to the fire at Caldra farm near Duns in the Borders at about 20:30 on Tuesday.

When they arrived at the scene a diesel fuel tank was well alight and spreading to a joining building.

Four more crews were sent to the farm to fight the flames, and at the height of the blaze about 50 officers were involved.

The blaze was brought under control and officers were working to establish the cause of the fire.

No one was injured, the fire service said.
