Fire on railway embankment near Bridgnorth

By Sue Austin | News | Published:

A dry weekend led to grass and hedge fires, including one at the Severn Valley Railway near Bridgnorth.

A spark from a locomotive is thought to have been the cause of a fire on the railway embankment at Eardington Station.

The alarm was raised 10.46am today and a fire crew from Bridgnorth was quickly on the scene.

Firefighters put out the fire within 15 minutes.

Just after 3pm today a fire crew from Hodnet was called out to a fire in the open on Village Road, Childs Ercall.

The blaze involved trees, undergrowth and fence panels.

It was brought under control by 3.50pm.
