Fire crews and a landowner worked together to stop a fire from spreading in Ryedale last night (Thursday).
Firefighters were called to a fire in the open at Scagglethorpe, Malton, at 6.07pm.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Crews inspected a bonfire under supervision and assisted in moving it away from a hedgerow to prevent further spread.
“Crews used knapsack sprayers and beaters.
“The landowner moved the fire which was under control away from the hedge with a JCB bucket.”
