Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service crews from Slough and Langley fire stations were sent to the scene alongside a Water Carrier and two Officers, one of whom was from Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service.

Upon arrival, crews discovered a fire in a horse stable. Crews equipped with breathing apparatus rescued a horse and used two hose reels to extinguish the fire. Sadly, one horse passed away at the scene.
