Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

Two fire appliances from Somerton and Bridgwater attended a farm in the above area after reports of a tractor in the yard on fire. On arrival crews got straight to work using one hose reel jet, one fog spike and a thermal imaging camera to ensure the fire was out. The farmer had removed the tractor from the hay barn and extinguished the fire prior to our arrival. Crews on scene were damping down hotspots and also inspecting the barn to ensure there was no fire spread. The tractor was 25% damaged by fire. The fire was contained in the engine compartment of the tractor.
