TWENTY tonnes of thatch feed and hay caught fire near Langport last night (October 3).

The incident is the sixth fire in less than two weeks in the area and happened at 9pm in Curry Rivel.

At its height, there were five fire engines and several firefighters tackling the blaze at the farm.

It took around an hour to control the fire but then at 1am crews found another fire in a pile of sawdust.

Firefighters were still at the scene this morning dampening down the area.

No one was hurt and the cause is not yet known.
