Island firefighters were mobilised over the weekend after a hay baler caught fire in the Braaid.

A unit from the Douglas Fire Station was called to the scene on Clanna Road at around 10.40pm last Saturday (August 15) to find the baler up in flames on arrival.

Crews were then able to extinguish the blaze using high pressure hoses during an operation which lasted around one hour.

The fire service adds it’s not known at this time whether it was a mechanical or electrical fault which caused the incident.
