Location: Field Road, High Ham, Near Somerton
Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

Two fire engines from Somerton and Street were mobilised to numerous reports of a tractor on fire in a field in High Ham.

On arrival crews confirmed the tractor was fully involved in fire and got to work extinguishing the fire using 2 breathing apparatus, 1 hose reel jet, 1 thermal image camera and drag forks. Unfortunately the fire had also spread to the trailer causing 20% fire damage. The fire had also spread to standing crop in the field but crews were quick to extinguish this to stop any fire spread.

The cause of the fire was accidental and crews left duty of care with the owners.
