Big grass fire tackled by Burnham-On-Sea fire crews

Fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea and Bridgwater have this afternoon (Monday, April 25th) been battling to bring a big grass fire under control.

Crews were called to River Road in Pawlett at 4pm, where a three acre field was ablaze.

Firefighters used hose reel jets to bring the fire under control and damp down the field, as pictured.

A fire spokesman told that the blaze had been started by winds blowing flames and sparks from a nearby controlled fire onto the dry grass.

"Extra care needs to be taken when setting controlled fires during this very dry weather. Fire can so easily spread," he said.
