Fire appliances attended a tractor on fire, which was well alight on the arrival of crews. Two hose reel jets and two breathing apparatus wearers were used to put the fire out. The fire had started spreading to an adjacent barn, but this was halted by swift action of the crews.

The cause of the fire was deemed as accidental. The tractor was destroyed, and the barn sustained minor damage.
