Hay Bale Fire

Two fire engines from Evesham and Per shore and a water carrier from Evesham were called to the incident and on arrival found 19 large rolled bales of hay and straw alight. One hose reel jet was used to tackle the fire and dampen down a nearby hedge to prevent any spread, letting the fire burn down to a manageable level.

Station Commander Adrian Moore from H&WFRS said: "With the help of the farmer and his farming machinery, the hay was then spread out to ensure the fire was fully extinguished."

After the incident had been controlled, a stop message was sent at 5:53pm that same day.

There were no injuries and no buildings affected.

Police and fire officers are investigating the cause of the fire.
