Combine harvester and trees catch fire in Ramsden Bellhouse
4:32pm Monday 17th September 2012 in Local News
FIRE crews tackled a blaze on a farm after a combine harvester caught light.
Paul Chipperfield, station officer at Basildon, said the blaze was an accident.
“The farmer was trying to restart the engine and there was some kind of fault with the electrics,” he said.
“We were there for quite a while because access was difficult and it was quite a large machine.”
No one was hurt and the flames were put out just after 3pm.
