Two crews from Honiton attended the incident on the A375 at Putts Corner, near the Hare and Hounds pub, shortly after 4pm.

A fire service spokesperson said: “Crews requested the attendance of a water carrier due to the amounts of hay alight.

“Steady progress was made throughout the job, turning over and damping down the hay using drag forks.”
