Questions and final response:

I am writing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, to request information relating to callouts to farm fires for the past five years, from the beginning of 2015 to date
          Date of event (ideally full date, but at least month and year)
          Geographical location, e.g. postal area (as granular as possible without being disclosive of personal data)
          Cause or suspected cause (if known)
          Location of fire (ie domestic, agricultural building containing animals, out building not containing animals)
          Whether farmed animals were involved
          Types of farmed animal involved (cattle, poultry etc.)
          Farmed animals killed (Y/N)
          Number of farmed animals killed (exact number if known – although any quantification available would be useful)

Please find attached an Excel spreadsheet containing data on farm fires.  We do not record data on farmed animals.
