FIRE teams were called to a farm in Minehead this afternoon (June 14) when an agricultural forager set alight.

Two fire crews from Minehead were sent to investigate. On arrival the crews confirmed the forager was well alight and they had a compressed air foam jet in use.

The forager, which was located in an open field, was 90% damaged by fire. The fire was extinguished using four breathing apparatus, the compressed air foam jet, a hose reel jet and a thermal imaging camera.
