Crews called to hay bale fire

Old Down Road, Badminton

Crews from Yate, Bath and Kingswood fire stations were called to 300 tonnes of straw bales on fire. 

On arrival, firefighters used high pressure hose reels, 45mm jets and beaters to tackle the fire and make the area safe. 

Crews have also implemented fire breaks to stop the spread with the assistance of the farmer. 

The cause is thought to be deliberate.
