A spokesman from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said: “We have had multiple crews at a large fire involving two barns and contents - believed to be straw - on Caistor Road near Market Rasen today.

“One crew is still there with our water carrier.

“Thankfully there were no casualties.

“Thanks go to Humberside Fire & Rescue Service for their assistance too.”
