Fire crews tackle 10 separate hay bale blazes
Fire crews were called out to battle 10 separate hay bale blazes last night.
A crew from Rothwell Fire Station attended a report of a fire in the field off Leeds Road in Lofthouse at 6.41pm.
On arrival crews found there to be the separate fires so appliances from Ossett, Killingbeck, Morley and Wakefield were called.
Crews used hose reels and a farmer assisted with the breaking up of the bales. The bales were left to burn out for environmental protection.
