Firefighters have tackled the latest in a series of blazes in agricultural machinery which have led to field fires.
Two crews from Huntingdon were called to a field near the A141 at Hartford last night (Thursday) where they found a baler was on fire and that the flames were spreading to a field and bales.
Firefighters have had to deal with a spate of fires in combine harvesters and other agricultural equipment - which spread to crops - as farmers try to get the harvest in under hot and dry conditions.
Firefighters used hoses to put out the fire, which was accidental, and were at the scene for nearly two hours.
Earlier in the day a crew from St Neots put out a “well developed” fire involving conifer trees and fence panels at an address in Green Fields.
