The hot and dry weather is continuing to prove a challenge for North Yorkshire’s firefighters.
They were called to a number of field fires in the county overnight.
At 5.52pm, crews from Scarborough, Filey and Malton responded to a blaze in three stubble fields at Butterwick, Malton.
The fire spread to a tractor caused significant damage.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Crews worked with a number of local farmers to extinguish the fire and create fire breaks with tractors.
“The fire was believed to have been caused by a spark from a plough hitting a stone.”
Then at 6.16pm, a crew from Huntington put out a grass fire in a field off Usher Lane, Haxby, measuring 50m by 15m.
A crew from Bedale went to a fire in a stubble field at Rookwith, Bedale, which had spread to a baler. The baler was out when firefighters arrived.
They put out the fire to the bales and spread them out to dampen down and check for hotspots.
