Hedge catches fire

 Kingsbridge and Salcombe fire crews were mobilised this morning to a hedge on fire on the Bantham road.

When they arrived on scene, close to the Bantham roundabout, they found a "small fire" in the hedge, caused by "fallen 11,000 volt overhead electrical cables".
The road was closed and livestock removed from nearby while Western Power Distribution isolated the power to the cables.

The crew are currently remaining on scene "until power has been isolated and the fire can be fully extinguished".


  1. Hedges catch fire but it depends on the quality of dryness of that material with the suitability of matter. The scorched hedge is here and the credit goes to the Devon and the Somerset fire and help with dissertation rescue services with the proper facility in nature.
