Fire control received a call earlier today reporting a tractor and trailer on fire.  Two fire engines were quickly mobilised to the incident and on arrival crews reported on fire involving the tractor, trailer, and part of a hedgerow.  Crews extinguished the fire using four breathing apparatus, two hose reel jets, one compressed air foam jet, and one thermal imaging camera.  The tractor was 100% damaged by fire and the trailer was 50% damaged by fire.  The fire is believed to be accidental.
