Field fire

Chalkshire Road, Butlers Cross

One appliance and crew from Beaconsfield, one from Thame, two from Bedfordshire and one from Wheatley attended..

The fire was in a field of approximately 77 acres of standing crop.

The firefighters used:

  • One main jet
  • Three hose reel jets
  • Five beaters

They established a water shuttle, and farm machinery was used to create a fire break to help prevent hotspots from spreading.

Around 50 per cent of the field was damaged by the fire, which also affected neighboring woodland.
