It broke out on Friday night (2 August) on a farm on River Lane in Funtley in Fareham, in a hay storage building of metal clad construction, measuring 18 x 30 metres. 

About 30 firefighters using breathing apparatus used five jets, two ground monitors and three fan sprays to extinguish the fire, which took more than six hours.
