Two firecrews were called out to a straw stack fire at Carlton Le Moorland last night (Sunday).

Firefighters from Brant Broughton and North Hykeham attended Broughton Road at 7.31pm where 150 one tonne straw bales were on fire, according to a fire service spokesman. A crew from Waddington arrived later to assist.

There was also damage to 15 metres of hedgerow.

Firefighters used one hose reel jet to put out the hedge fire and allowed the stack to burn out under supervision.
