A Colyton Fire Station spokesperson said: “The crew from Colyton joined up with the Honiton team to deal with an agricultural vehicle on fire in Farway.

“They quickly got it under control using both tanks of water from the fire engines.”

The fire station spokesperson added: “Due to isolated locations and narrow access routes, rural fires can take us a while to get to so always dial 999 as soon as you can to get us on our way, and keep away from the fire.”
