Stubble field fire - Upton - Peterborough

Crews from Dogsthorpe, Stanground, Yaxley and a water carrier from Ramsey were called to a stubble field fire in Langley Bush Road, in Upton near Ailsworth.

A fire across about 7 hectares of field was extinguished using jets and beaters. 

Station Commander Karl Bowden said: “Crews got there quickly and made up for further fire engines to get the fire under control and stop it from spreading further.”

All crews returned to their stations by 3.10pm.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
