Firefighters on the scene of the Pinehurst fire have managed to get the blaze under control this evening with many of the 40 firefighters packing up to leave the area with the aerial appliances still working to douse the roof area of One Stop store.

Crews from Swindon, Stratton, Royal Wootton Bassett, Cricklade and Corsham have been working for the last three hours to but out the blaze.

It is understood from locals who have gathered on The Circle this evening that the fire was started deliberately at the back on the One Stop store where it quickly spread to the main building.

Investigations into how the fire started will be going on well into the night and if rumours of arson are true the search for the arsonists will begin.
