120 tonnes of straw allowed to burn

Tolldown Road, Tormarton

Multiple crews were called to a fire involving 120 tonnes of baled straw that was allowed to burn.

Crews from Yate, Avonmouth and Kingswood fire stations attended the incident.

On arrival, firefighters found the straw well alight and allowed it to burn due to its safe location.

The fire was monitored throughout the night, with firefighters damping down and dragging the edges to prevent it from spreading.

A reinspection was carried out the following morning.

The cause of the fire is thought to be deliberate.
