PHOTOS: Dramatic blaze tackled in Burnham-On-Sea's Mendip Way

A Burnham-On-Sea fire crew was called out to tackle this 'deliberate' blaze in the town on Sunday evening (November 5th).

Burnham-On-Sea firefighters were called to Mendip Way at around 7.45pm.

A fire service spokesman told "We were called to a hedge and tree on fire at the front of a property which we believe may have been set deliberately by a passer-by."

"One fire appliance was sent to the scene and our crew used a single hose reel jet to extinguish it."

"A 10ft section of hedge was damaged, along with a street light."

Anyone with information about the cause should call Burnham Police via 101.
