ABOUT 15 firefighters spent more than an hour battling a fire yesterday.

Crews from Lymington and Brockenhurst were called out just before 2am to a property in Kings Saltern Road in Lymington, where an outbuilding used as a laundry room was on fire.

Two breathing apparatus sets were used along with two main jets, one hose reel and one positive pressure ventilation fan.

The blaze was out by 3.30am.
