Firefighters in the Sleaford area are continuing to receive daily call outs due to the hot weather and tinder dry conditions causing field fires.
Three fire crews were called to a stubble field on fire at Kirkby La Thorpe yesterday morning (Wednesday).
Two crews from Sleaford and a crew from Billingborough arrived at the field off Mount Lane to find around 100m by 100m of the stubble on fire.
According to a fire service report, the firefighters used a plough to create a fire break, then extinguished it with hose reels and beaters.
* Later, at around 9.22pm yesterday evening, a Sleaford fire crew attended reports of a fire in Sleaford Wood.
They used a water back pack and buckets of water to put it out.
