Firefighters were called to a large pile of manure and straw alight in a field.

The pile measured approximately 30m x 30m.

Crews reported the fire was deep seated within the pile and was located very close to a large stack of baled straw.

One crew stayed with the fire over night to ensure it was burning out safely and did not spread to the baled straw.

Crews left the scene at 5am, and will make several visits back today ensure it is safe.
