blaze extinguished by Burnham-On-Sea fire crews
firefighters were called to extinguish a tractor blaze near Bridgwater
on Monday afternoon (April 8th).
crews from Burnham, Street and Glastonbury were called to Moorlinch
at around 2.45pm after a tractor was reported to be in flames.
Fire crews found the tractor well alight and, as it was located
a considerable distance from the roadway, crews requested two
off-road brendon pumps from Glastonbury and Burnham to help the
Street fire crews.
"The crews extinguished the tractor and the attached trailer
full of dung, using two brendon pumps and two breathing apparatus
wearers. The tractor was severely damaged by fire and the cause
of the fire is believed to be accidental," a spokesman told
