FIREFIGHTERS were sent to tackle a bonfire that got out of control in North Newton this afternoon.
Crews were called to the scene at Coxhill just after 2.30pm.
A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “The fire involved a wood pile approximately 10m by 20m which was situated close to three mobile homes.
“Crews have also confirmed the fire has now spread to a further two wood piles.”
Heavy machinery operated by the Clyst St George specialist rescue team was also called in to help move the burning timber.
