Firefighters battle blaze at hay barn near Bushmills


The Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) is tackling a large blaze this morning, Tuesday 24 August, at a hay barn on the Revallagh Road, between Coleraine and Bushmills.

It is understood that the barn contains around 300 bales of hay and is part of a terrace of barns. Firefighters are working under pressure to stop the blaze from spreading to the adjoining sheds.


A massive smoke plume is visible for miles around as firefighters battle to bring the blaze under control.

Six Fire Appliances were tasked at 8.13am to the scene - two from Coleraine Fire Station, two from Portrush Fire Station, one from Dungiven Fire Station and one from Ballymoney Fire Station.

The incident is currently ongoing.
