THE cause of a fire which destroyed a home at a Pembrokeshire eco village remains unknown.

Twenty-two firefighters spent six hours tackling the blaze at Lammas eco village in Glandwr, near Crymych, on Monday.

A house made partially of straw bales has been ravaged, but thankfully no-one was injured.

The eco village is made up of nine unique properties, all designed to promote sustainable living.

Dai Swan, group manager for Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, said crews were confronted by a house engulfed in flames.

He said the straw construction of the building made the fire difficult to extinguish as the material can easily reignite, but firefighters had managed to stop it spreading to a nearby greenhouse.

He added: "It's utterly heartbreaking for the crews seeing how much workmanship has gone into these [house] frames.

"Each piece of this building is bespoke, it's done to a beautifully high standard and to see it damaged by fire is just heartbreaking."
