Fire Crew called to field fire in Apse Heath

fire crew called to field fire in apse heath

An Isle of Wight Fire Crew stationed at Shanklin has been called to a field that was alight just after 10 pm on Friday 27th July 2018. A member of the public contacted the service to say that flames could be seen in a field on in Alverstone Road in Apse Heath. Firefighters attended and found that the fire was out on their arrival. The crews used the fire appliance to carry out an inspection of the field before returning to their home station. The cause of the fire is unknown. The call comes just weeks before when a fire ripped through a crop field caused by a fault from a combine harvester.
