Hay baler on fire in Brookmans Park
PUBLISHED: 09:28 02 September 2016
Crews from Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield and Potters Bar were sent to extinguish a farmer’s hay baler which was on fire in Brookmans Park.
The fire service was called at 3.38pm on Thursday, September 1, to a hay baler well alight in a field in Gobions Wood.
Firefighters overcame difficult access and set one light weight pump into a nearby lake. They used one jet to extinguish the blaze.
A spokesman for Herts Fire and Rescue Service said: “Three appliances were there, which was more to do with access to water rather than the seriousness of the fire.”
The fire was out by 4.58pm, and was described as accidental.
