Large pile of wood on fire

Paddocks Lane, Woburn Sands

Three appliances and crews from West Ashland, one from Broughton, and one from Bedfordshire attended.

The fire was in a large pile of cut logs and wood chippings, which measured approximately 25m by 10m.

The firefighters worked through the night to extinguish the fire and prevent the fire spreading further into the surrounding area.

They initially used two main jets and a hose reel. They set up a water shuttle, and the turntable ladder from West Ashland was used to provide a water tower.

A water carrier was mobilised to the scene, and a dam set up.

Crews used a thermal imaging camera to monitor hot spots, with crews and appliances remaining on the scene into the following morning.
