Combine harvester catches fire

Tue, 27 Aug 2013

Fire crews from Ramsey and Laxey were called into action on Saturday after a combine harvester caught fire.

It happened just after 2pm in Maughold.

On arrival firefighters found the machine, and around 200 metres of freshly cut crop, in a field alight.

Both were extinguished and crews remained on scene for over an hour to cool the inner workings of the combine harvester to prevent the fire re-igniting.

No one was injured during the incident.
