Firefighters tackled a burning building in Wisbech last night.

At 6pm, two crews from Wisbech were called to a fire on Nettle Bank, where they found a temporary building alight between two barns.

They used a hose reel and jet to extinguish the fire and cleared the smoke using a positive pressure ventilation fan, before returning to their station by 9.20pm.
