An electrical fault was the cause of a large fire at a farm near Chester this morning (Monday, November 6).
Crews from Chester, Frodsham and Ellesmere Port remained at the scene in a farm yard just off Guy Lane near Waverton for most of the day as they worked to extinguish the blaze which originated inside a large silo.
The silo was believed to have contained about 15 tonnes of rape seed and specialists removed grain using a conveyor belt.
There were no road closures or threats to nearby properties and crews remained at the scene damping down for almost six hours.
A Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said the fire was caused by an electrical fault.
