Hundreds of piglets die in fire at Lincolnshire farm

  • 8-28-2010

More than 500 piglets and about 170 sows have died in the second of two fires this year at a Lincolnshire farm.

Firefighters were called to Northmoor Farm in Caistor Road, Market Rasen, at about 2200 BST on Friday.

It took six crews several hours to put the fire out, which was caused by an electrical fault, a Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said.

In February, hundreds of piglets and sows died in a fire at the farm, which was also blamed on an electrical fault.
