A warning has been issued by the fire service following a series of hay and straw fires across the area.
A Devon and Somerset Fire Service spokesman says it has attended several small fires involving hay bales and straw fires in recent days.
“We wanted to remind the public & farmers how easily these fires can start.”
“Hay stacks next to roads & public footpaths are vulnerable to fires – either from discarded cigarette ends or by arson.”
Motorists have been urged not to discard cigarettes out of moving vehicles.
