Brothers hurt in barn fire at Wrexham eisteddfod site

  • 10-3-2011

Six crews are tackling a large barn fire at the site of this year's National Eisteddfod in Wrexham.

Two brothers working on the farm at Ruthin Road suffered burns. One remains in hospital, the other was discharged.

Police have closed the road as smoke billows across it. Firefighters are expected to be there for several hours.

Firefighters were called to the incident at 14:09 BST on Monday. It is believed the barn contains hay, fertilizer, farm machinery and tyres.

A North Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said one of the injured brothers was discharegd from hospital with superficial burns, but the other was transferred to Whiston Hospital, Merseyside, for assessment.

The 2011 National Eisteddfod was held in August on fields next to the A525.
