The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) are investigating a “deliberate arson attack” at a Fermanagh farm which killed three animals on 26 September.
The blaze broke out at a large shed on Killsmullen Road in Tedd, Northern Ireland, at around 10.30pm, which housed a cow and two calves and contained high value farm equipment, including tractors.
As a result of the fire all the animals located in the shed died and equipment was “completely destroyed”. After inspecting the scene, the Northern Ireland Fire Service determined that the fire was started deliberately and passed the matter on to the police.
Detective constable Linda Strawbridge said: “I am asking anyone who was in the area at around the time the fire was discovered or who may have any information that could assist us, to please call 101, quoting reference number 329 28/09/18.”
Farming Sector has contacted PSNI with updates to follow.
