A stack of straw set alight in Lincolnshire this weekend, while a tractor is reported to have been on fire in Scotland.
Fire crews were called to a fire in Wragholme, Lincolnshire at 6:25am on Sunday morning (September 18).
It is believed about 80 tonnes of straw set alight on the farm, which was adjacent to a farm building containing a number of propane air cylinders.
The fire damaged an area of 25 metres squared of baled straw and cause significant heat damage to the workshop within the barn.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue believe the fire was started by spontaneous combustion due to the high moisture content in the freshly bailed straw.
Meanwhile, crews in Scotland attended a farm near Kinellar where a tractor is reported to have set alight.
This comes as statistics from Scottish Fire and Rescue revealed rural fires in the country are at a five year high.
