Five crews tackle woodland blaze

Five crews of firefighters tackled a blaze in Shute Woods, near Axminster, late on Saturday afternoon (April 29).

They employed beaters, drag forks, several hose reel jets and a street hydrant to set up a water shuttle.

A water bowser was also requested to attend the scene, along with an incident command vehicle.

The fire was eventually brought under control with crews returning to check the area yesterday morning (Sunday).
