Initial reports suggested the fire was in the roof of a building that was under construction.
On arrival the attending crew requested backup, and a further three appliances were sent accompanied by the incident command and welfare unit.
Fire crews tackled the blaze using; one main Jet, two hose reels, two fog spikes, a 135’ ladder and two breathing apparatus.
Crews on scene then requested a further two fire appliances to assist.
D&S fire later confirmed that the fire originated from a two storey building with photovalitc cells. Crews worked into the night to fight the blaze.
The fire was in a detached building used as a private dwelling and was accidental.
A spokesperson from D&S fire said: “This was a particularly difficult incident due to the nature of the building site being on a steep slope being very muddy and also very wet.
When crews returned to the station it took a very long time to get the appliance and equipment clean enough to use again along with cleaning of breathing apparatus.
