D&SFRS support with tractor fire

Weston Road, Loxton

Crews from Weston and Southmead fire stations, along with crews from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, were called to a tractor fire. 

Following initial difficulty reaching the incident, crews extinguished the fire thanks to support from Cheddar fire station's all-terrain vehicle.

Firefighters also used four beaters to stop the fire from spreading. 

The cause is thought to be accidental and the Environment Agency were informed due to diesel runoff.
