Crews tackle combine harvester fire near Broomfield
11:04pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
CREWS tackled a combine harvester fire near Broomfield this afternoon (August 28).
Tow fire engines from Bridgwater were called to the incident at Rackhouse Farm shortly after 3pm.
They found the vehicle to be well alight and worked to put the fire out, also requesting a water carrier and two additional pumps.
The Environment Agency was informed after diesel spilled into the hedgerow, while Highways were also called due to the precarious position of the vehicle.
The combine harvester and around ten square metres of cornfield were severely damaged by the fire, which was believed to be accidental.
