Two appliances were called to a fire in Ringsfield yesterday afternoon after a tractor caught alight.

The Suffolk fire service were called to the blaze on School Road at 4.45pm.

Fire engines from Bungay and Beccles arrived at the scene to find the blaze well alight.

Fire fighters used hose reel jets and foam to quench the fire at the farm.

After the fire was extinguished, fire fighters used a thermal image camera to identify and assess hot spots at an incident site.

These specialised cameras are also can used during the damping down phase of a fire, which helps prevents the blaze from reigniting.

No one is believed to have been injured in the blaze.
