Firefighters will return this morning to inspect the damage done by a straw stack fire in Kirton last night (Wednesday).

Crews from Boston and Kirton attended the blaze on Wash Road at about 11.20pm where approzimately 50 tonnes of straw bales were on fire, spreading to a 20m section of hedge.

A fire service spokesman said the crews hosed down an area to create a fire break between the burning bales and some hedging and allowed the rest of the bales to burn out under supervision.

They would return this morning (Thursday) to inspect.
