Proving that fire crews can tackle more than heath fires and disposable barbecues, Wareham Fire Station was called to help a trapped horse at Creech Grange near Corfe Castle.
The crew that got the call at 1.15 pm on Saturday 18th July 2020, arrived to find the horse caught in an iron fence. They had to cut away part of the fence and then with a bit of persuasion, they were able to free the horse. The fence was then made safe with the help of the owners.
“A few cuts and bruises”
Wareham Fire Station said:
“The horse was very calm throughout and had a few cuts and bruises which a vet was able to deal with.”
While the Wareham Fire crew was off base dealing with the incident in Creech Grange, a Swanage Fire engine and crew were sent to be on standby at Wareham Fire Station to cover for them.
