Firefighters were called to a tractor on fire this morning.

The blaze occurred in a field near Hunton.

Firefighters were called at just after 8.02am.

Fire crews had to pull the hose 180 metres from the appliances to the scene of the fire.

Crews from Richmond and Leyburn attended.

It is thought the fire started after stubble under the cab ignited.

Crews used one hose reel and two breathing apparatus to tackle the fire.
