EMERGENCY services were called out to a small fire at a saw mill in Dodleston.

The blaze started after paper bales caught alight fire at the mill on Welsh Road.

When crews arrived, just before 4pm on Tuesday (April 30) they discovered the bales were out in the open and used one hose reel to extinguish the fire.

Crews then broke down the bales which contained cardboard and paper and proceeded to dampen down the area.
