Crews from Cambridgeshire and Nottinghamshire came to help tackle the blaze.

There was a large smoke cloud above the property which was not thought to be hazardous.

Residents living nearby were warned to keep their windows and doors shut, while South Fen Road was also closed.

Over the weekend crews returned to the scene to monitor the fire.

No further information is currently available.
