Fire crews tackle field fire in Bere Regis

2 fire engines from Poole fire station and 1 land rover from Bere Regis attended reports of a field of straw alight off of Church Lane, Anderson near Bere Regis.
Shortly after arrival crews requested further assistance by way of 2 further land rovers and 2 further off road fire engines, these came from Wimborne, Blandford, and Sturminster Newton fire stations.
Crews used main lines and hose reel jets to extinguish the 1 hectare of straw that was alight. Agricultural machinery was also used to create fire breaks in the field to prevent the fire from spreading.
