Two farmers working in fields in Devon found themselves having to call the fire service yesterday (Wednesday) as their machinery caught fire.
One of the fires needed more than 1,000 litres of water applied.
The first was a forest harvester that caught fire in a field in Crediton Hamlets.
The farmer called the fire service which responded by sending a fire engine and a water bowser from Danes Castle and a second fire engine from North Tawton at 4.21pm.
On arrival, firefighters found the machine well alight.
