A TRACTOR was damaged after catching fire in a Bridgwater field.

Two fire crews from Bridgwater, one from Street and a water bowser from Yeovil were sent to the field, in Chilton Road, Chilton Polden, at just after 12.30pm yesterday (July 29).

"Once the crew got in attendance the officer in charge confirmed one tractor well alight in a field," said a Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson.

"The crew got to work to extinguish the fire with the use of two hose reel jets and two breathing apparatus.

"The fire is now out and the crews made the area safe. The cause of this fire is believed to be accidental."
