Fire in the open - Haddenham - East Cambs

At 4.12pm on Saturday (30) crews were called to a fire in the open in Haddenham.

More than 50 firefighters attended a well-developed fire involving around 200 acres of farmland, including bales, hedgerow and crops. 

Crews from Cottenham, Ely, Cambridge, Littleport, Chatteris, March, Sawtry, Wisbech, the Peterborough Volunteer Fire Brigade, Stanground, Dogsthorpe and the south roaming fire engine, along with the water carrier from Ramsey and a crew from Wickhambrook in Suffolk, attended the incident. 

Firefighters worked tremendously hard throughout the afternoon to get the fire under control. They began leaving the scene at around 8pm and will be maintaining a regular presence to make sure the area is safe.
