Three fire appliances from Taunton and Wellington along with specialist appliances from Danes Castle, Middlemoor and Cheddar were sent to reports of a baler on fire in a field of straw.
On arrival the first appliance found a bale well alight and got to work using 1 hose reel jet and 1 drag fork. Further investigations were being carried out to try and establish if a baler was on fire. After further exploration and discussion with the farmer it was confirmed there was not a baler on fire but hot spots found with a thermal imaging camera were extinguished. A scotty pack was also used to extinguish a second seat of fire near the bale.
