Horses rescued from New Forest farmhouse fire

  • 2-28-2013

About 12 horses have been rescued from their stables after a blaze at a farm in Hampshire.

Firefighters were called to the fire in Hill Top, Brockenhurst just before 16:30 GMT on Wednesday.

Some of the horses were led to safety, others were cared for by an animal specialist as firefighters stripped part of the roof to stop the fire.

The occupants of the house escaped unhurt. The fire is thought to have started in a log burner.

Station manager Rob Cole said: "The buildings were arranged in such a formation that we had to contain the fire quickly to prevent it spreading to the stables and barn.

"The crews worked very hard in a short space of time to strip the roof tiles to allow us to attack the fire from above."

About half of the roof was destroyed by the blaze.
